November is American Indian Heritage Month

In recognition of AIHM, IME is hosting a viewing and discussion of "What Was Ours", a 2016 film by Matt Hames. Snacks will be provided! 

Film Synopsis: An Eastern Shoshone elder and Vietnam vet, who hasn't left the Wind River Indian Reservation in over 40 years, visits the underground archives of Chicago's Field Museum with two young Arapaho to explore ancestral objects kept in boxes for many years. Like millions of indigenous people in many parts of the world, they do not control their own material culture. It is being preserved and locked away by "outsiders" who themselves do not know what they have. Together the team tries to learn how these artifacts vanished from their tribe in the first place. Mat Hames directed this film.
