Program description

Yakama elders and their guests are invited to watch the movie Neither Wolf Nor Dog after the monthly meal at the Georgeville Community Center.

The independent film is adapted from a novel of the same name by Kent Nerburn. The film review website rottentomatoes.com describes the story as "a white author is summoned by a Lakota Elder who asks him to write a book about his perspective. After a blundering false start, he is all but kidnapped and sucked into a road trip through the heart of the contemporary Native American landscape." 

The distribution company's brochure asserts that the film was once known as the great unmade Native American novel in Hollywood, that Neither Wolf Nor Dog has sold around half a million copies worldwide and that no other novel is acknowledged as so successfully bridging the gap between white America and the Native American world.

This outreach program is sponsored by the Friends of Goldendale Community Library.
