United by Water Film Showing followed by Q&A with Director Derrick Lamere
Join Film Director Derrick Lamere for a showing of “United By Water”, followed by a Q&A session with Derrick after the film.

Director Statement
Derrick LaMere: “When I started production on United by Water, I wanted to document the experiences of my people (Colville) as they reintroduce themselves to our ancestral waterways on the Columbia. Every day I worked with the canoes and their makers, I became more and more inspired to share the stories of these people. After sharing the project with Upper Columbia United Tribes, I was able to dig deep and tell a portion of our history I feel is left out of the history books of the general public. With the guidance and voice of Native American Poet and Author Sherman Alexie, we as a group were able to tell the unique story of the tribes of the Upper Columbia.”
