The Price of Peace

October 10, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Denver had proclaimed the second Monday of October Indigenous People’s Day.

Join History Colorado for a special film screening as part of the 13th annual Indigenous Film & Arts Festival. The Price of Peace (director Kim Webby) presents a well-rounded profile of Tame Iti – a man of peace, a loving father and grandfather, a kaumatua (elder) of his Ngāi Tūhoe tribe, an artist, performer, and activist who has spent his life advocating for Māori rights. Tame’s life changed forever on October 15, 2007.  In the dead of night, heavily armed police in military style uniform raided his home and the homes of many more people in what became known as the infamous “terror raids.” For the next six years he fought to clear his name and the name of his Tūhoe people. This documentary follows Tame through the court system, through his jail sentence, and is with him on his return home. (Conbrio Media, Ltd., 2015, 82 min.).

Welcome by Patricia Limerick, State Historian.

Post-screening Q&A by Morris Te Whiti Love.
