Lucy Moore Foundation features BlueWolf film at Lake County Museum

LAKE COUNTY – Hinthel Ganula, a film edited by Lake County's Poet Laureate and published author James Bluewolf, will be featured at a community meeting on Sunday, Feb. 10 at 1 p.m., on the second floor of the museum, 255 N. Main St.


The film describes the history of the native people of this area, with an emphasis on the devastating effects of the Gold Rush, and is narrated by BlueWolf.


The Lucy Moore Foundation will host a panel discussion and dialog on the issue of the use of Indian names as sports mascots following the film from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.


This is an opportunity to exchange views and hear from all sides. The goal is to achieve understanding on how and why such divisions occur and how personal hurt affects decisions. The discussion will focus on why the practice of using Indian names as mascots is controversial.


All interested parties, especially residents of Kelseyville and native people, from all sides of the issue whether for, against or undecided, are encouraged to attend and are welcome, as this meeting will be educational.


The intent is to encourage people to make up their own minds, based not on hearsay or any form of preconception but on actual and complete information.


This is an opportunity to base decisions on facts. Strong emotions have arisen around the Kelseyville High School mascot issue. The organizers encourages all who come, on both sides of the issue, to attend with a willingness to respect everyone present, and to hear all sides of the issue with an open mind and an open heart.


A volunteer from Mediacom's public access TV Channel 8 will record the discussion for broadcast on the PEG channel.


Food and refreshments will be served, food fights will be discouraged. Thanks to all for keeping a sense of humor.


For more information or details call Bernadine Tripp at 275-9574.
