The Healing Heart of Lushootseed

Tuesday, March 5th at 6PM

A consortium of Island organizations are co-sponsoring a screening of “The Healing Heart of Lushootseed,” a documentary that tells the extraordinary story of how a diminutive great-grandmother, the late Vi Hilbert, tenaciously gathered support from unlikely corners for her most ambitious project: to heal the heart of the world.

The screening will happen Tuesday, March 5 at 6pm at Vashon Theatre.  Admission by donation. A discussion with the filmmaker, Jill La Pointe – granddaughter of the late Vi Hilbert – will follow the film screening. Ms. La Pointe is the Director of Lushootseed Research (LR), a nonprofit dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the Lushootseed language and culture.
