The Native Alliance Against Violence (NAAV) invites you to attend a free movie screening of Wind River (2017, Rated-R, 107 min.) This free screening will be held at:
6:00 pm- 8:30 pm; Muscogee (Creek) Nation Mound Building, 1008 E Eufaula St, Okmulgee, OK 74447
Through this screening, the NAAV hopes to bring awareness to the cumulative effects of unchecked domestic and sexual violence of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. Wind River delves into the intersection of the energy industry, Indigenous women, sexual violence and murder within tribal jurisdiction. The movie does not provide solutions, however, it does provide examples of some of the complexities those on the front lines confront when dealing with sexual violence and homicides on tribal lands.
Wind River tells the story of an FBI agent and a wildlife officer that investigate the murder of a young Native American woman on a reservation in Wyoming. Though it is a fictional tale, Wind River is rooted in reality throughout Indian Country.
This is an R rated film, all minors under the age of 17 must be accompanied by an adult. Due to violence, nudity and R rating we strongly discourage the attendance of young children.
Registration is required
The families, friends, and communities of missing and murdered indigenous women and children can confirm that this epidemic is not a new occurrence to our state or our nation. The problem is magnified by the fact that the stories of the missing and murdered are not publicized by the mainstream media. We demand accountability from the perpetrators that have forcibly taken our loved ones. We stand in solidarity with those that seek to address the plight of the missing and murdered indigenous women and children in Oklahoma. The NAAV also supports similar efforts across the nation by bringing awareness through outreach, supporting families, and identifying and advocating for closing gaps in systemic response. The NAAV has created a space on our website for the missing and murdered native women and children of Oklahoma to reclaim their visibility. oknaav.org/missing-and-murdered
