In April, viewers will learn about the Indian Boarding Schools of the 19th and 20th century in the monthly film screening of Our Spirits Don't Speak English. Each month, guests can enjoy a different 30-40 minute film with discussion about an aspect of Native American culture. These films are produced by Native American filmmakers such as Rich-Heape films, and presented in cooperation with various tribes. All film screenings are offered by Midwest SOARING as a service to the community, and there is no charge to attend. After the film visit our Native American Cultural Center Gift Shop and enjoy our photo exhibition gallery The Repatriation of Iron Tail's Possessions: The Face on the Indian Nickel and the collection donated by Dr. Clifford Knapp. Meet and greet other Midwest SOARRING members. We welcome new members.
