When: Thu., Nov. 8, 7 p.m. 2018

Across the Shaman's River is the story of one of Alaska's last Native American strongholds, a Tlingit community closed off for a century until a fateful encounter between a shaman, a preacher, and John Muir. Using Muir's original journal entries, as well as historic writings of explorers juxtaposed with insights from contemporary tribal descendants, Across the Shaman's River reveals how Muir's famous canoe journey changed the course of history and had profound consequences on the region's Native Americans.
