Native American Film Series

2017-2018 Film series Season

Welcome to the Augsburg Native American Film Series!   This year is full of variety and energy.   We will update this page as our season progresses so check in periodically.

November TBA: INAATE/SE/ [it shines a certain way. to a certain place./ it flies.falls./] (directors Zack and Adam Khalil, INAATE/SE2016)

This experimental documentary explores the Ojibwe story of the Seven Fires Prophecy, which has been interpreted as predicting the arrival of the Europeans in North America and the subsequent destruction they caused. Bold, smart, and unflinching, the film examines the relationship between cultural tradition and modern indigenous identity. 2016, US/Canada, 75 minutes.

 

March 30: Native American Perspectives on Law Enforcement + Short films from MIGIZI COMMUNICATION’S YOUTH PRODUCERS

Native American Perspectives on Law Enforcement is a short video collage of interviews from Native sons, a mother, fathers, educators and leaders expressing their thoughts on “the talk”—or lack thereof—in Indian Country from their own experience.

 The interviews offer the Native American perspective and individual impressions from Native American interactions with law enforcement today.
Chandra Walker (Omaha Nation) is a Community Health Educator at the Office of Health Disparities & Health Equity in Lincoln, Nebraska.  Jared Long Soldier (Oglala Lakota) lived much of his childhood running into the law. More recently, he has discovered a faith led journey of sobriety that has helped him turn his interest to giving back to other men who are looking for a sober lifestyle. Larry Voegele (Standing Rock Sioux Tribe) is CEO for Health Services Division at Ponca Tribe of Nebraska. Joseph B. Rousseau (Cheyenne River Sioux) is an Administrator within Lincoln Public Schools for the Expelled Student Program and also serves on the Lincoln Public Schools Indian Parent Advisory Committee.
