Sousa on the Rez: Marching to the Beat of a Different Drum

Cathleen O'Connell


USA, Music Documentary, 2012
27 min, HDV, Color
English

 

When you hear the phrase "Native American music" you may not think of tubas, trumpets and Sousa marches. Yet this rich musical tradition has been a part of Native American culture for over one hundred years. The documentary profiles two contemporary Indian community bands: the Fort Mojave Tribal Band, from Needles, California and the Iroquois Indian Band from upstate New York. The documentary traces the origins of these groups to their respective foundings over a century ago and uncovers a secret history of the 20th century, when "all Indian bands" toured the US and abroad.
