      Discovering Dominga

      When Denese Becker, an Iowa housewife who was adopted, looks into her
      birthplace in Guatemala, finds that she is the last survivor of her
      family after a massacre of Mayan peasants. Denese's journey home is
      both a voyage of self-discovery that permanently alters her
      relationship to her American family and a political awakening that
      sheds light on an act of genocide. Guests for the night are speaker
      Azalea Ryckman, radio producer of Mujeres Abriendo Caminos (Women
      Opening Paths), and activist on the issues affecting Guatemala and
      the Guatemalan community in LA, and special guest poet Daniel Morales

      Event located at The National Center for the Preservation of
      Democracy at 111 North Central Ave. (directly across from the
      Japanese American National Museum) in downtown Los Angeles.

      This event is hosted by Lorin Morgan-Richards and Tahesha Knapp-
      Christensen and sponsored by The Japanese American National Museum,
      The Southern California Indian Center, Inc., Haramokngna American
      Indian Cultural Center, and The National Center for the Preservation
      of Democracy.

      Aleut Story
      In the turbulence of war, the Aleuts of Alaska would redefine
      themselves � and America. From indentured servitude and being put
      into concentration camps during World War II, to Congress and the
      White House, this is the incredible story of the Aleuts' decades-long
      struggle for our nation's ideals. Special guest author/poet Marie
      Huskey (Unangan/Aleut) to start the screening!
