Promised Land Documentary – Friday May 5, 7:00 PM, 5th Ave Cinema

FILM SCREENING: PROMISED LAND
May 5th, 7 p.m., 5th Avenue Cinema on campus.
Promised Land is an award-winning social justice documentary that follows two tribes in the Pacific Northwest: the Duwamish and the Chinook, as they fight for the restoration of treaty rights they’ve long been denied. In following their story, the film examines a larger problem in the way that the government and society still looks at tribal sovereignty. It has been chosen for the award for Achievement in Documentary Filmmaking at the 10th Annual LA Skins Fest, and was an official selection for the 41st Annual American Indian Film Festival, Northwest Film Forum’s 19th Annual Local Sightings Film Festival, the 12th Annual Ellensburg Film Festival, and the 5th Annual Social Justice Film Festival, among others.
To learn more about the film, visit http://promisedlanddoc.com.
Suggested donation at the door: $5. A portion of the night’s proceeds goes to supporting the tribe.
Free popcorn and post-film discussion with Chinook Indian Nation elders; Duwamish Tribe Councilmember, Ken Workman; PSU Professor Kenneth Ames; and the filmmakers.
Sponsored by Portland State University’s Department of Anthropology and University Studies.

The answers to these questions will be addressed in this unique hands-on workshop. Lectures and progressive in-class exercises will teach you the basics of how the Egyptian hieroglyphic writing system and language works and start you on the road to reading simple inscriptions and understanding the concept of writing and language in ancient Egypt. An ideal course for students of archaeology, linguistics, or ancient history.
