The Snake River Fund, in partnership with Jackson Hole Kayak Club, Greater Yellowstone Coalition, and American Rivers, is proud to present a screening of Tribal Waters and the Wild Rivers Film Tour as a part of the second annual Snake River Fest. A portion of this year's ticket sales will go directly to water resource projects on the Wind River Indian Reservation.
Tribal Waters is an in-depth look at social injustice and ecological devastation that the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho tribes face as a result of the management of Diversion Dam on the Big Wind River. Tribal Waters will be followed by a brief panel discussion, with the Wild Rivers Film Tour lineup screened after a brief intermission. The Wild Rivers Film Tour is a collection of short films that celebrate the wild rivers of the west. 2023 Wild Rivers Film Tour Lineup:
Paddle Tribal Waters documents Klamath River Tribal efforts to train for the first Indigenous whitewater descent of the Klamath after dam removal.
Vjosa Forever explores the need to create Europe’s first National Park dedicated to protecting the entire length of the wild Vjosa through Albania.
Attack and Release closes the reel with a heartwarming story about a Montana chef who regained life purpose through his river community following a near-death experience. This program will benefit the Water Resource Projects currently underway on the Wind River Indian Reservation. Both this Film Tour and Snake River Fest as a whole are both a celebration of our wild rivers and a call to action for the stewardship and protection of the rivers we all cherish!
