Docs & Dialogue: We, the People
Join us for a critical screening of a youth-produced film examining Native American identity and representation in NYC.
Did you know that there are 9.7 million Native Americans living in the United States today and that New York City has the largest population of Native Americans out of any other city in the country?
In honor of Native American Heritage Month, EVC invites you to Docs & Dialogue, a virtual film screening and community dialogue, on Native American identity and representation in New York City. On November 17th from 6-7:30 PM, EVC’s young people will screen the 1992 documentary We, The People. This film explores the impact of racial stereotypes on Native Americans as well as how members of this community, including Native American students and representatives of The American Indian Community House and the Native American Education program in NYC, are creating alternative spaces to tell their own stories.
Docs & Dialogue will be hosted by EVC alumni, Cirilo Ordonez and Zuri Salehe, with our featured guest speaker Lenape activist, Norris Francis Branham.
