Native American Heritage Month Film Screening at IUPUI
The Right to Be will be screened at 4 p.m. in the Lower Level of Taylor Hall on the campus of Indiana University-Purdue University Thursday (20 November) as part of the celebration of Native American Heritage Month at IUPUI.
The film is a documentary of a Lakota woman's combating the media's misrepresentation of her tribe. In the film, she visits United Tribes Community College where students learn about their traditions, a Sioux Tribe Council's discussion on high unemployment rates, and a very private Sweat Ceremony held in her honor.
