“Teachings of the Tree People”, from Director Katie Jennings, is a beautifully produced tribute to the life and work of Skokomish elder Gerald Bruce Miller (subiyay), a nationally prominent cultural leader and teacher who brought his talents home to lead a cultural renaissance in the Pacific Northwest. The film chronicles his youth with tribal elders; his young adulthood in Berkeley, Viet Nam and New York City; and his adult years on the Skokomish Reservation in Shelton, Washington. A passionate student of the traditional Skokomish culture, Miller became the bearer of the language, oral history, art, and spirituality of the tuwaduq (Twana) and Southern Coast Salish peoples. (IslandWood Productions, 2005, 58 min.) Distributed by New Day Films.

Please join us for a discussion with the film’s Co-Producer Tracy Rector, moderated by Jeanne Rubin, Film Festival Director, International Institute for Indigenous Resource Management.
