IMPORTANT UPCOMING EVENT!

In acknowledgement of September being Suicide Awareness Month, and the fact that suicide is the second highest cause of death in 18-24 year olds, FRHRC is offering a the film WAKE UP that shines a light on suicide prevention and aims to defeat the mental health stigma associated with suicide.

The film will be available online for a 72-hour period from 12:01 a.m. Sept. 26 to 11:59 pm Sept. 28.

You can watch the trailer on YouTube if you’d like to preview it; THEN, organize a family, work or organizational watch party, spread the word to co-workers, family, friends and church groups, schools, etc. This is not a gloom and doom film. It approaches information on four populations where suicide rates are very high—War Veterans, LGBTQIA+ individuals, Teens and College Students, and homes where folks have easy access to firearms. It’s a conversation about hospitals that have no beds and have to turn patients away, about making connections with folks who have anxiety, staying on your medications, talking about your feelings, and getting help as early as possible, and being the person someone can actually talk to about those feelings. The National number for suicide help is: 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

After the 3 day viewing, we will have a panel discussion with local community members on our facebook page that can be accessed for free any time, day or night.

Please contact us at FRHRC on facebook through messenger , at cbicreek@stignatius.net, or 406-203-2179, and we will then send you the link and password to the event via email.

Thank you!

BROKEN PLACES (childhood trauma)

Broken Places explores why some children are severely damaged by early adversity while others are able to thrive. By revisiting childhood trauma victims we profiled decades ago, we learn how their experiences shaped their lives as adults.

FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO (LGBTQIA+ coming out family issues)

 Daniel Karslake’s documentary “For They Know Not What They Do” takes its title from Jesus’ response to those who crucified him, and it serves as gut-wrenching punctuation to the stories of misguided parents whose inability to accept their gay children leads to inevitable tragedy.

WARRIOR WOMEN (activism)

Warrior Womenis the untold story of American Indian Movement activists who fought for civil rights in the 1970s, and the children who served as their inspiration and their cohorts. The film is anchored by one of the Red Power Movement’s most outspoken Lakota leaders, Madonna Thunder Hawk, and her daughter Marcy Gilbert.

THE CONDOR AND THE EAGLE(climate justice)

Four Indigenous leaders embark on a trans-continental adventure from the Canadian plains to deep into the heart of the Amazonian jungle to unite the peoples of North and South America and deepen the meaning of “Climate Justice.”

BLOOD MEMORY(child removal)

Battles over blood quantum and ‘best interests’ resurface the untold history of America’s Indian Adoption Era – a time when nearly one-third of children were removed from tribal communities nationwide. As political scrutiny over Indian child welfare intensifies, an adoption survivor helps others find their way home through song and ceremony.

HAND GAME(traditional gambling)

An inside view of an ancient form of gambling that combines strategy, wit and skill. This documentary explores the mythic and historic roots of contemporary gambling in the Northwest Native Society through a look at the traditional hand game (also called “stick game” or “bone.
