NSU offers free screening of movie

— TAHLEQUAH — Northeastern State University invites the community to a free screening of “The Cherokee Word for Water” on Thursday.

Dedicated to the vision of former Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Wilma Mankiller, the film follows the efforts of Mankiller and Charlie Soap to bring a water line to the community of Bell through the Bell Waterline Project. Two of the films producers, Kristina Kiehl and Soap, will be in attendance.

The screening will take place in the Webb Auditorium. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the first 50 people will receive a copy of Mankiller’s book “Every Day is a Good Day.” A drawing will also be held for a flat-screen television. The film begins at 6:30 p.m. and snacks and drinks will be available.

“We feel it important to properly honor and respect Chief Mankiller’s life and work,” Todd Enlow, NSU Director of Auxiliary Services, said in a media release. “Likewise, numerous community members were excited about the opportunity to gather as a family and enjoy the story of how volunteers gathered together to change a community. We want to ensure that this story is told so that everyone can enjoy it.”

Event sponsors include NSU Auxiliary Services, Student Affairs, Academic Affairs, College of Liberal Arts and the Indigenous Scholar Development Center.
