Have you heard about the upcoming PBS series on Native Americans? It is series to be aired during April. This is what the PBS promo has to say about it:
"At the heart of the project is a five-part television series that 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."
If you have interest in learning more about the project or signing up for e-mail reminders of airing dates, you can go to this web site:
You can also order a pre-publication copy of the DVD if you are unable to watch the series or prefer to watch it on your own schedule.
I am excited and can hardly wait for the first episode.
