The Outdoor Adventure Center is honored to host a screening of the award-winning documentary, Expedition Reclamation
Expedition Reclamation | The Trailer from Brave Space Media on Vimeo.
Following the screening of the film, there will also be a panel discussion. Meet the panelists below:
Ina Waring-Enriquez | Film Character (she/her) grew up in western Washington, walking barefoot in her Oma’s garden, climbing high in the evergreen trees that surrounded her childhood home. She grew up with a German mother and a Mexican father. As a kid her dad would take her hiking, fishing, camping, and skiing. She associated being outside with being carefree, joyful, and safe. Ina now calls Leavenworth, Washington, Wenatchi homelands, her home and place of recreation. As a snowboarder and rock climber, she hopes to bring representation, inclusion, and equity into the spaces and activities that bring her life.
Elisa Lopez’s | Film Character (she/her) passion for the natural world started at a young age surrounded by orchards. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Zoology and began nourishing her connection to the outdoors as well as helping others build their connection in 2018. Through her work with Team Naturaleza, Elisa is creating a space where the Hispanic/Latinx community can gather, learn about the environment bilingually, and create positive memories outside. Elisa’s favorite outdoor activities are paddle boarding, revisiting sites and noticing changes, and birding.
Kaja Ralston | Film Character (she/her) is a mixed first-generation American Afro-Latina and an outdoor enthusiast and adventurer. Born and raised in San Diego to two immigrants – one from the Caribbean and the other from Central America – she constantly found herself at the intersection of the richness of her family cultures and the culture of her hometown. Her early connection to nature specifically with the ocean helped shape her identity, and cultivated a sense of belonging and confidence in the outdoors that she brought with her to the Pacific Northwest. She holds a BA in Intercultural Studies with a minor in Visual Communications. She aspires to become more of a storyteller and a lifelong learner of outdoor sports so she can share this sense of belonging, joy, and connection in nature with the next generation especially Black, Brown, and Indigenous women. Most days you will find her spending quality time with her husband and German Shepherd puppy either outside in nature or with family.
