Who are the Native peoples who have lived and are now living on the land that we call home? How can we learn the real history of this place? What would right relationship with Native peoples look like in our community? What steps can we start taking in that direction? The one-hour documentary film “Two Rivers” tells the story of a rural community in Washington state that initiated a process of dialogue between Native and non-Native residents of the area. As the non-Natives learned the real history of the land and its consequences for the region’s original inhabitants, they undertook some very significant actions toward reconciliation and healing. We can be challenged and inspired by their example, and begin to take steps toward right relationship with Native peoples in our own community.
