Movie screening & Reception: "The Cherokee Word For Water" produced and directed by Charlie Soap, based on a true story about Wilma Mankiller, the first female chief of the Cherokee Nation.
The 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. Free & Open to the Public.
