The Silver City Public Library, in collaboration with the Fort Bayard Historic Preservation Society, will host a free online showing of Neither Wolf Nor Dog, a Steven Lewis Simpson film adapted from the best-selling Native American novel by Kent Nerburn and starring Dave Bald Eagle, Christopher Sweeney, Richard Ray Whitman, Roseanne Supernault, Tatanka Means, and Zahn McClarnon. The film will be accessible via a special web link for one week, from December 6 through December 12, 2020. 

Neither Wolf Nor Dog by Kent Nerburn follows a white author who gets sucked into the heart of contemporary Native American life in the sparse lands of the Dakotas by a 95 year old Lakota elder and his side-kick. No other novel is seen to so successfully bridge the gap between white America and the Native American world. The film is produced and directed by British director Steven Lewis Simpson whose first award-winning feature premièred at the Edinburgh Film Festival in 1994. Neither Wolf Nor Dog author Kent Nerburn approached him personally as Simpson had already directed two features in Lakota Country previously.

Organized by Silver City MainStreet, cash mobs are now occurring in several New Mexico MainStreet districts as a way to help businesses through the pandemic. 

The virtual shopping events are held online using facebook live. Merchants have the opportunity to showcase 50 of their items for sale. Shoppers watch the event and use the comment section to shop. Volunteers track the comment section to record purchases and the merchant reaches out to the shopper the next day to arrange pick up or shipping. 

“It means a lot to a small organization like Silver City Community Theatre (SCCT) to have the support of The Silver City Food Co-op and their December Roundup,” said Phyllis McQuaide, SCCT Board President. “Co-op shoppers can round up when they check out and donate their change to SCCT. This year’s Zoom productions have been fun but costly; the roundup donations of the Co-op community will enable us to keep going through the uncertain future. We are very grateful.”

“SCCT’s Zoom productions—small plays, readings, and a workshop—have been challenging and exciting. We have had great audience support. The Roundup will enable us to keep on Zooming and to put our actors back on the stage as soon as possible. Our next performance is a Christmas Show on December 19th at 7pm. To sign up for SCCT emails go to www.silvercitycommunitytheater.com,” according to McQuaide.

“Be the Community in Community Theater—join SCCT! Individual and family memberships receive tickets and admission to opening night parties and workshops.
