I know where you want to be Monday night, April 13th … Viewing PBS and the American Experience documentary We Shall Remain. During Loriene Roy’s ALA presidency, we were treated to a taste of the new five-part television series We Shall Remain. WOW! You will not want to miss this.
According to the web site, this series: shows how Native peoples valiantly resisted expulsion from their lands and fought the extinction of their culture — from the Wampanoags of New England in the 1600s who used their alliance with the English to weaken rival tribes, to the bold new leaders of the 1970s who harnessed the momentum of the civil rights movement to forge a pan-Indian identity. We Shall Remain represents an unprecedented collaboration between Native and non-Native filmmakers and involves Native advisors and scholars at all levels of the project.
Debbie A. Reese alerted LM_NETter’s to a clip on Facebook, but I went to YouTube to find this clip:
Be sure to check out the website for local events. I cannot wait to own the DVD that is being released April 28th. I’m already wondering how this will affect future products for schools.
