The story of Native peoples, their TRUE story is just now beginning to be told, not by others this time, but by Natives themselves.
And it is one of beauty and oh, so much pain . . .We have so much to learn from them.
If you have seen Rise, Red Power or other documentaries, give us your thoughts . . .
I am sharing this recent interview from Democracy Now! with two indigenous women filmmakers at the Sundance Film Festival this year.
Published on Feb 28, 2017 http://democracynow.org - We speak with the filmmakers behind RISE, a new VICELAND series that examines indigenous resistance past and present, from the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation’s resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline to “Red Power,” which looks at past indigenous resistance and the evolution of the Red Power Movement. Michelle Latimer is a Toronto based filmmaker, programmer, actor and activist of Métis and Algonquin descent; and Sarain Carson-Fox is an Anishinaabe artist, activist and the host of the series. The RISE series airs on Fridays at 9pm EST.
