Viewing opportunity for recently released film: One Word: Sawalmem

Run4Salmon friends have been gifted the opportunity to view and gain 5 day access (beginning at the time of your choosing) to the film, One Word : Sawalmeman uplifting, internationally-acclaimed, Native-directed short film that’s good for the whole family to watch.

The 20-min film is based on one single question: What’s one word from your sacred language that changed your life and that you can offer to the next generation as medicine to heal our relationship with the Earth?

Michael “Pom” Preston of the Winnemem Wintu tribe of Mt. Shasta, son of spiritual leader Chief Caleen Sisk, didn’t hesitate to choose his word, Sawalmem.  Sawalmem is sacred water.  Through this word, he takes us into a rare, intimate, current-day personal portrait of what life is like when you consider water as sacred.Winner of multiple awards, finalist of the short documentary program of the Tribeca Film Institute and selected for 40 festivals around the world, the film is now yours to watch. 

Friends of Run4Salmon, Get instant access to watch the 20 min film here.
