Museum to show 'Bones of Crows,' feature guest speaker

Hastings Museum is pleased to bring film “Bones of Crows” to the theater Feb. 1-4, as well as a virtual presentation on Thursday, Feb. 1 from the Executive Director of the Nebraska Commission on Indian Affairs. 

“Bones of Crows” tells the story of Cree code talker Aline Spears and how she survived a traumatic past in Canada’s residential school system. It also communicates the broader story of her family’s generational fight against systemic starvation, racism, and sexual abuse. 

Special Guest Speaker Judi M. gaiashkibos (gosh-key-bosh) is the Executive Director of the Nebraska Commission on Indian Affairs. As an enrolled member of the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska, gaiashkibos’s family has first-hand experience with Indian boarding schools, including the one at Genoa. 

Museum Director Teresa Kreutzer-Hodson said gaiashkibos has worked tirelessly for American Indian causes her whole life. Her mother and grandmother both lived in Indian residential schools in the United States. 

"Her experiences are so tied to this film, but from a Nebraska perspective," Kreutzer-Hodson said.

Film Only: FEB 2 & 3, 6:15 p.m. & FEB 4, 5:15 p.m.
