Special to Atmore News
The Poarch Band of Creek Indians has partnered with the Pride of Atmore, a local non-profit dedicated to downtown revitalization using the arts, to host a free screening of “The Forgotten Creeks,” an Emmy award-winning documentary that tells the story of the Poarch Creek people through their long and important history.
Produced by Jacksonville State University’s Longleaf Studios, the documentary traces how the Tribe has evolved from being an impoverished, isolated community to the independent, self-sufficient Indian nation it is today.
The screening takes place Sunday, November 5, at 2 p.m. followed by a Q & A session with tribal members at 3 p.m. The event is held at the Strand Theater, located at 116 S Main Street.
Complimentary popcorn and soda are provided by the Fairhope Film Festival. Screening seating is limited, and early RSVP is encouraged. Please RSVP to CommunicationsInfo@pci-nsn.gov.
