DENVER - The International Institute for Indigenous Resource Management's monthly film series called "Indigenous Film at the Garden" features "Teachings of the Tree People" on Tuesday night.
Known to the Skokomish people of the Pacific Northwest as "subiyay," Bruce Miller interpreted the silent teachings of the natural world for anyone who wanted to learn. A nationally prominent cultural leader and teacher, Miller traveled the world, but eventually brought his talents home to lead a cultural renaissance in the Pacific Northwest. Miller shares the traditional practices of gathering and preparing cedar bark for weaving, uses of medicinal plants, and the presentation of wild foods for the fall Ceremony of First Foods. This beautiful and poignant film is the parting gift of a great teacher, artist and orator.

DATE: Tuesday, June 21
TIME: Doors open: 6:30 pm; Program: 7:00-8:30 pm
LOCATION: Gates Hall, Denver Botanic Gardens
1007 York Street, Denver
