Upcoming Screenings and Broadcasts
Posting about Tracing Roots film screenings has been on hiatus, with attention going to Standing Rock and the elections of 2016. As we paused, there are close to 900 broadcasts of Tracing Roots via the World Channel to public broadcasting stations across the country happening.
We hope each viewer will connect Delores' story to Standing Rock and the struggle to protect human rights, land and water and heritage.
