Image from the film Playground of the Native Son
In a world where headdresses are worn in fashion shows, knock-off Navajo designs are mass produced for every dress line in Walmart, and a racial slur is still being hailed by millions as the mascot for a football team, there are significant accomplishments by Native Americans that receive little to no nationwide media coverage. We would like to bring attention to these accomplishments by showing two films that exhibit everyday achievements by extraordinary role models, or what we’re calling Unsung Heroes.

This series is sponsored by First Nations Educational and Cultural Center (FNECC), Native American and Indigenous Studies Program, the Native American Graduate Student Association (NAGSA), and IU Cinema.
