Our Stories Onscreen: Creating a Narrative with Native Filmmakers Representations of Native Americans in film have a long history of stereotypes and generalizations. Increasing Indigenous visibility in American culture is a goal of the Sundance Institute’s Native American and Indigenous Film Program. Since 2001, Bird Runningwater, program director, has worked to build a global Indigenous film community. Over the past twenty-five years, more than 300 Indigenous filmmakers have participated in the Sundance program, helping to bring their stories and voices to the screen. Bird Runningwater, belongs to the Cheyenne and Mescalero Apache Tribes and grew up on the Mescalero Apache Reservation in New Mexico. He currently serves on the Comcast/NBCUniversal Joint Diversity Council, the Boards of Directors of the First Peoples Fund and Illuminative. He is also a member of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. Event is free and open to the public. 6:00pm PUBLIC RECEPTION | 7:00-8:30pm LECTURE “Our Stories Onscreen: Creating a Narrative with Native Filmmakers”
