Peninsula College Film in Forks- The Cherokee Word for Water

Location: Peninsula College in Forks

In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8, 2017, Magic of Cinema and the Peninsula College House of Learning will be screening The Cherokee Word for Water. This feature length film tells the story of Wilma Mankiller, the first modern female chief of the Cherokee Nation. Set in the 1980s, the film highlights the struggle for and ultimate success of a rural Cherokee community to bring running water into families’ homes using the traditional concept of gadugi—working together to solve a problem.
