Indigenous Film Showcase: Home Waters
The Channel Islands Maritime Museum is happy to announce its first film showcase event “Home Waters: Coastal Communities and Maritime Traditions,” a selection of four short films. Through animation, cinema verite, and classic documentary formats, four directors take us across North America and Canada to explore coastal indigenous lifeways.
In “Now Is the Time” and “Homecoming: Journey to Limuw” we see the revival of ancestral Haida and Chumash traditions after the impact of colonization. In “Lake” we watch a group of Metis women net fishing. Finally, in “Nibiising,” we see the importance of caring for the places we call home. This showcase serves to show that Indigenous traditions continue to thrive today. The showcase will be followed by a panel discussion.
Home Waters will be presented on October 9, 2021, starting at 3:00 pm until 5:00 pm at the Channel Islands Maritime Museum located at 3900 Bluefin Circle in Oxnard. Tickets for the event are available through the Museum’s website at www.cimmvc.org
