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.

The REDress REdress Project

Tina Keeper


Canada, Social Activism/Artist Documentary, 2012
16 min, HD, Color
English

 

In Manitoba, over the past 2 decades, 75 Aboriginal women have gone missing or have been murdered. This documentary contrasts the concepts implicit in the targeted violence towards Aboriginal women - that they are faceless/voiceless/lifeless - against the courage and tenacity of Aboriginal women who raise their voices against violence and systemic failings, as mothers, daughters, sisters, aunties and warriors. The film also profiles the art installation "The REDress Project," by Metis artist Jaime Black, which was an aesthetic response to the 600 missing and murdered Aboriginal women in Canada, with the aim of drawing attention to the gendered and racialized nature of violent crimes against Aboriginal women.
