Bloom Collective to screen film on US policy towards Native Americans this Saturday

November 14, 2012

This Saturday, the Bloom Collective will host a screening of the documentary, The Canary Effect: Kill the Indian, Save the Man.

From multi-award winning directors Robin Davey and 
Yellow Thunder Woman, comes this ‘Illuminating Documentary.’ 
Delving deeply into the often misunderstood and frequently over looked 
historic realities of the American Indian, The Canary Effect follows 
the terrifying and horrific abuses instilled upon the Indigenous people of North America, and details the genocidal practices of the US government 
and its continuing affects on present day Indian country. 

Featuring interviews with the leading scholars and experts on Indian issues
including controversial author Ward Churchill, the film brings together the 
past and present in a way never before captured so eloquently and boldly 
on film.

According to the Facebook event page, the Bloom Collective says: Join us for a viewing and discussion of the film as we prepare to venture into the Thanksgiving season. Following the film there will be a discussion, donations accepted.
