The American Holocaust Series
The American Holocaust is a film & conversation original series dedicated to the Native Perspective streaming live monthly on Facebook and on Red Nation Television Network. This exclusive series was born out of a recognition that many Americans know little to nothing about Native Peoples, and that the media provides a far-reaching portal to deliver this meaningful and sought-after education. Serving to amplify visionary Native voices towards a thriving future for all of us, each unique 2-hour episode centers around a timely topic relevant to today’s pandemic(s), offering a clear understanding of the truth from the original peoples of this land for the healing of humanity.

Each monthly episode begins with a new short film, followed by an expertly moderated panel featuring Native voices from multiple generations and nations. The name of this cutting-edge series is inspired by Joanelle Romero’s film of the same name, which was short-listed for an Academy Award in 2000.

This year marks the 25th Anniversary of RED NATION CELEBRATION INSTITUTE (RNCI), the longest standing, and largest Native Arts & Cultural nonprofit, representing over 500+ nations in the City of Los Angeles to the world!
