RETURN, a new documentary by NMWIF member Karen Cantor, will premiere on Friday, July 13, at The Lodge at Santa Fe.

RETURN is a story of hope and action lighting a path to health for all Americans. The film follows six courageous women from tribes across the continent reconnecting with the earth by harvesting, preparing, and celebrating their food. Following the footsteps of their ancestors, these Native American women regain sovereignty over what they eat, empowering others to do the same. As lead character Roxanne Swentzell says, “Show them that you’re not gone yet. Make it be a food revolution.”
