Environmental Film & Speaker Series: "The Eagle Huntress"
Wenatchee River Institute is sponsoring a documentary 'The Eagle Huntress', as part of the Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center's Environmental Film & Speaker Series. The Eagle Huntress is a film featuring a Mongolian Kazakh nomad girl fighting to become the first female eagle hunter in her family after 12 generations.
Thirteen year old Aisholpan overcomes obstacles to rise to the pinnacle of a tradition handed down for centuries from father to son. Many of the older eagle hunters reject the idea of a female taking part in this tradition while Aisholpan's father believes a girl can do anything a boy can do.
This WVMCC film series explores topics important to the greater Wenatchee Valley community. The Eagle Huntress is presented in the Museum's Performance Hall, 127 South Mission St. in Wenatchee, is family-friendly, features a no-host bar, free popcorn, and treats.
