BENDFILM PRESENTS: “THE NORTH FACE: DOUG TOMPKINS, FITZ ROY, AND THE FIGHT TO SAVE PATAGONIA”
McMenamins, Old St. Francis Theater
When North Face Founder Doug Tompkins died last December in a kayak in his beloved Patagonia, it was perhaps not the most surprising way for him to go. Tompkins lived an adventurous, tumultuous life.
It all started in 1969 when a group of California friends drove 8,000 miles in a decrepit van from Berkeley to the tip of South America to climb an imposing stone pillar called Fitz Roy.
When: Thursday, February 4th, 6pm
Where: McMenamins, Old St. Francis Theater
Tickets: $10 Public / $7 BendFilm Members
February 5 (Thru Feb 6)

NATURAL HISTORY PUB: NAVAJO, NEW DEALERS, AND THE METAPHYSICS OF NATURE
5:30 pm – 8:30 pm
McMenamins Old St. Francis School
During the Great Depression, the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs imposed a conservation program on the Navajo Reservation, which eliminated half of the Navajos’ livestock herds in an effort to halt erosion. This controversial program failed, and reflected differences in their values and their understandings about the way nature works. The conservationists employed scientific theories to depict the Navajo range as seriously overgrazed. Navajos by contrast, drew on their cosmology and their long experience grazing the southern Colorado Plateau, and they concluded that the problem was temporary drought. Each group offered a conception of the world that the other found incomprehensible. That was not necessarily an unbridgeable divide, for they shared common ground – the desire to maintain some sort of “balance of nature.” Presented by Marsha Weisiger, the Julie and Rocky Dixon Chair of U.S. Western History at the University of Oregon, where she is an associate professor of history and environmental studies.
