Meaningful Movie Bellevue is proud to present Covenant of the Salmon People

This is a ZOOM event.

Produced in collaboration with the Nez Perce (Nimiipuu) Tribe, Covenant of the Salmon People is a 60-minute film exploring how the Nimiipuu people’s relationship to salmon has shaped them. As the oldest documented civilization in North America, the Nimiipuu date back over 16,000 years to a creation story that is an agreement to protect salmon and speak on their behalf. The covenant with salmon is woven into Nimiipuu culture, history, and now their modern-day species restoration work. This covenant is being impacted by the widespread construction of dams across Nimiipuu traditional lands, prompting questions: Will the work of the Nimiipuu be enough? How can we help?

Kayeloni Scott, Producer of the film, will join us for Q&A and discussion after the screening.
