518    Originally produced by Kamama Films  in 2013. 
520    Based on the true story of the Bell Waterline Project, THE
       CHEROKEE WORD FOR WATER shares the struggle for, 
       opposition to, and ultimate success of a rural Cherokee 
       community to bring running water to their families by 
       using the traditional concept of "gadugi "- working 
       together to solve a problem.. Set in the early 1980s, the 
       film begins in the homes of a small town in rural Oklahoma
       where many houses lack running water and others are little
       more than shacks. Told from the perspective of Wilma 
       Mankiller and full-blood Cherokee organizer Charlie Soap, 
       these leaders join forces to battle opposition and build a
       16-mile waterline system using a community of volunteers..
       In the process, they inspire the townspeople to trust each
       other, to trust their way of thinking, and to spark a 
       reawakening of the universal indigenous values of 
       reciprocity and interconnectedness. This project also 
       inspired a self-help movement in Indian Country that 
       continues to this day. The movie is dedicated to Wilma 
       Mankiller's vision, compassion and incredible grace.
