You’re invited to the Death Valley Premiere of The Women In The Sand, a documentary film about the lives and work of the Timbisha Shoshone elders who fought to gain federal recognition for the tribe, for the repatriation of their homeland, and for the continued survival of their traditional ways. 

Members of the tribe and the producers/creators of the film will hold a Q&A session after the screening and refreshments will be served. The event is sponsored by the Shoshone Museum and the Tecopa Shoshone Writer's Group.

We are hopeful that some or all of the women featured in the film may be able to join us for the Q&A. We're all pretty excited about this and I hope many of you will join us for this rare opportunity.

Because we want to accommodate as many of our friends, family, neighbors, and visitors as possible, we're moving this event over to the Flower Building in Shoshone, where there will be plenty of room for everyone to find a comfortable seat. 

The screening takes place on Saturday, January 26, at 3:00 in the afternoon. The film is 73 minutes long, plus time for the Q&A afterward. The event is free, as always, and attendees are encouraged to donate to the Tupipa Project (more on that later).

Here's a trailer for the film:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6uQneJpvqM

The Flower Building is the big, square building a couple of buildings over from the museum on the same side of the street. It's called the Flower Building because of all the colorful flowers painted on the side!
