Reel Injun

Hi everyone – If you were interested in the talk that Tory Mudd gave  yesterday about images of Native Americans in Hollywood movies – you should watch Neil Diamond’s film,”Reel Injun”.  One of the ways we can counter mis-representations of Native Americans in film and the lack of Native representation in films is to seek out films by Indigenous directors and filmmakers. Neil Diamond is Canadian from the Cree  community of Waskaganish.  I am posting a trailer of his film here – enjoy 🙂 (We have a full Copy of the film on dvd)
