SCHEDULE FOR FALL 2014 FILM SERIES:

NATIVE AMERICAN WOMEN FINDING JUSTICE

We Still Live Here

This film tells the story of the revitalization of the Wampanoag language, the first time a language with no native speakers has been revived in this country. The Wampanoag’s ancestors ensured the survival of the Pilgrims in New England, resulting in the near destruction of their culture. Nevertheless, through resilience and courage they kept their identity alive and remained on their ancestral lands. Now a cultural and linguistic revival is taking place.

Monday, September 8 @ 10:00 – 11:30am in HUM 112

Young Lakota ­

This film follows three young people living in the Pine Ridge Reservation trying to forge a better future for their tribe. When the first female President of Oglala Lakota defies a South Dakota law criminalizing abortion by vowing to build a women’s clinic in their sovereign territory, the young tribe members are faced with difficult choices which will define the adults they will become.

Finding Dawn

Set in Canada, but with global implications, this film sheds light on the epidemic of violence against indigenous women.  It follows the stories of 3 out of the hundreds of women who have gone missing or been murdered in the past several years and explores the historical, economic and social factors that allow these murders and disappearances to go unresolved.
