About this Event

Join the Indigenous Peoples' Advocacy Committee (IPAC) of the Network for Social Justice for a screening of the 2017 film More than a Word, which explores the controversy surrounding the Washington R*skins football team and the politics of indigenous cultural appropriation. Using interviews from both those in favor of changing the name and those against, More Than A Word presents a deeper analysis of the many issues surrounding the Washington team name. The documentary also examines the history of Native American cultural appropriation.

Then, hear from those advocating for change at the State House and locally and learn more about contemporary issues facing Indigenous peoples across Massachusetts.

Admission fee include one drink ticket and hors d'oeuvres.
