Date Aug 03, 2018
Time 02:00 pm - 05:00 pm

Marta’s House is bringing Silent No More to your community. This 52 minute documentary, created by White Bison, Inc. and the Wellbriety Movement, presents an authentic look at violence against Indigenous women as well as the issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women. On some reservations, Native women are murdered at 10 times the rate of the national average. Families from Pine Ridge, South Dakota and Lame Deer, Montana share their stories of suffering. By sharing their experiences, they hope to bring awareness to these issues and start dialogue in Native communities.

Marta’s House shelter staff, Kristin Arthur Blodgett is a Certified White Bison Wellbriety Facilitator. She has been a Shelter Advocate since December 2016 and active in the Wellbriety Movement since 2012. Kristin is an enrolled Tribal Member of the Northern Arapaho and she is from the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming.

Kristin’s extensive work with Wellbriety is what led Marta’s house to brining the Silent No More documentary to our area. Klamath is the first county in Oregon to host a screening. Don’t miss this opportunity to see the screening, give feedback, discuss grassroots efforts to raise awareness, meet Kristin, and learn about upcoming start dates for Wellbriety Groups.

We hope you can join us on Friday, August 3rd at 2pm. The screening will take place at Mabel Liskey Pavilion, 2200 N Eldorado Ave, Klamath Falls. Admission is FREE and it is open to the public. Please feel free to invite anyone you know who may be interested. Flyers are attached.
