Inhabitants Film Screening

Inhabitants Film Screening In-Person

The Dedman College Interdisciplinary Institute and Native American Studies at SMU Research Cluster invite you to the next event in the DCII's 2023-2024 Big Challenge Series on Climate Resilience—a screening of the film "Inhabitants" followed by a conversation with Dr. Christopher Roos, SMU Anthropology.

"Inhabitants" follows five Native American Tribes across deserts, coastlines, forests, and prairies as they restore their traditional land management practices. For millennia Native Americans successfully stewarded and shaped their landscapes, but centuries of colonization have disrupted their ability to maintain traditional land management practices. From deserts, coastlines, forests, mountains, and prairies, Native communities are restoring their ancient relationship with the land. As the climate crisis escalates, these time-tested practices of North America's original inhabitants are becoming increasingly essential in a rapidly changing world. 

There will be a short reception with food and drink at 6:00pm, followed by the film screening and conversation at 6:30pm.
