The Cherokee Word for Water
An inspiring story about a remarkable woman and the power of community.
This movie is based on the true story of the Bell Waterline Project. Set in the early 1980s in the homes of a rural Oklahoma Cherokee community where many houses lack running water and others are little more than shacks. After centuries of being dehumanized and dispossessed of their land and identity, the people no longer feel they have power or control over their lives or future.
Based on a true story about Wilma Mankiller.
“The Cherokee Word for Water is a very rare story because it is about the empowerment of people who have been made to feel they have no power.” Gloria Steinem, Friend of Wilma Mankiller
