Join us for a film screening and book discussion of Neither Wolf Nor Dog.

Book Discussion November 30th at 11am

In celebration of Native American Heritage month in November, the book will be discussed on November 30th at 11:00am. Books will be available beginning November 1st.

The film will be screened November 29th at 6:30pm. The film follows a Lakota elder who sucks a white author into a road trip through the Dakotas to open the author’s eyes to the elder’s experience and perspective on the world.

The film, like the novel, is not just a deeply moving, funny and thought-provoking film, but it takes the audience deep into an elder’s reality. Dave Bald Eagle’s incredible performance alone gives the film a great cultural weight. According to the filmmaker, during the film’s climax at Wounded Knee, the script was abandoned and Dave improvised the whole sequence as his family was closer to the massacre of 1890 than even the character he was playing. At the end of filming the scene, he told his co-star “I’ve been holding that in for 95-years.”
