Five Films to Watch in November on PBS

Just in time for Native American Heritage Month in November, Vision Maker Mediapresents five new films that examine the contributions of Native peoples in helping to build America's infrastructure, the impact of public policy and historical trauma on Native tribes, and how one tribe is providing opportunities for youth.
These documentary films provide historical context as well as modern insight on key issues affecting Native Americans. Two films explore how Native American youth surmount major issues that affect their Tribes. One charts Native contributions to maintaining America's infrastructure, and two others review how Natives cope with historical trauma and how they protect their sovereignty.

 

LAKE OF BETRAYAL looks at the Seneca Nation's fight to protect its sovereignty against a backdrop of a federal Indian Termination policy, pork-barrel politics and undisclosed plans for private hydro-power generation. The documentary takes a long view of the imposed changes on the Seneca's way of life that have led to major economic benefits and irreplaceable cultural losses (Distributed by NETA). Lake of Betrayal Producers: Paul D. Lamont and Scott Sackett Viewer Discussion Guide Available
THE MAYORS OF SHIPROCK follows a group of young Navajo leaders in Shiprock, New Mexico, who meet weekly to decide how they will help their community. For more than seven years, the Northern Diné Youth Committee has worked to give youth opportunities to directly make changes within their community (Distributed by WORLD). The Mayors of Shiprock Producer: Ramona Emerson  Viewer Discussion Guide Available
WE BREATHE AGAIN explores the intimate stories of five Alaska Natives who are each confronting the impacts of historical trauma in their lives (Distributed by America Reframed). We Breathe Again Producers: Evon Peter, Marsh Chamberlain and Enei Begaye Peter Viewer Discussion Guide Available
METAL ROAD follows three Navajo railroaders from the 9001 Heavy Steel Gang as they leave their homeland to replace aging railroad tracks from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean under extreme weather conditions (Distributed by NETA). Metal Road Producers: Sarah Del Seronde and Leighton C. Peterson, Ph.D.  Viewer Discussion Guide Available
ON A KNIFE EDGE provides a privileged view into the interior world of George Dull Knife as he becomes politically active with the American Indian Movement, confronts the challenges of growing up on the Pine Ridge Reservation, and wrestles with accepting leadership of his storied family from his aging father. Set against a background of rising tension and protest, a Lakota teenager learns first-hand what it means to lead a new generation and enter adulthood in a world where the odds are stacked against him (Distributed by WORLD™). On a Knife Edge Producer: Eli Cane Viewer Discussion Guide Available
