With local filmmaker Tracy Rector honoring Puyallup Elder Ramona Bennett.
This featured event delves deeply into the Seattle Education Program residency theme: “The Power of Indigenous Documentaries in Conscientization, Education, and Building Cross-Cultural Collaboration.”
We will honor Puyallup elder, educator, and organizer Ramona Bennett as well as introduce the work of local filmmaker Tracy Rector.
Ramona Bennett has dedicated her life to making “a difference in the lives of others, with much of her efforts focused on issues of social welfare and child and family services. As a former Puyallup Tribal Council member in the days when the Tribe had little money, she also was active in the Seattle Indian Center, American Indian Women's Services League, Seattle All American Indian Association and more.”
Tracy Rector is Executive Director and Co-Founder of Longhouse Media whose mission “is to catalyze indigenous people and communities to use media as a tool for self-expression, cultural preservation, and social change."
This event is free and open to the public.
