POW WOW HIGHWAY 

A Bone Martinez, Amanda Wyss, Joanelle Romero, from POWWOW HIGHWAY (1989) join host Jonathan Schwartz and USC Profs Ange-Marie Hancock Alfaro & Chris Finley in conversation about the making, legacy, and meaning of this cult classic in Native American film.

Powwow Highway is the story of Philbert and Buddy who journey from Montana to Santa Fe to bail Buddy’s sister Bonny out of jail. For many indigenous peoples in the Americas, life can be grim. Much has been taken from them. In Powwow Highway, we begin with a view of the failed American Dram with the Northern Cheyenne tribe of Lame Deer, Montana. Buddy Redbow is a Vietnam veteran and activist looking to subvert a land-grab. His acquaintance and possible friend, Philbert Bono seems simple minded but might just be a spiritual guide to the rageful Buddy. When Bonny is framed and incarcerated in Santa Fe, the two men take Philbert’s beat up ’64 Buick, his ‘war pony,’ on a road trip via a Powwow gathering in South Dakota, Buddy’s life may just be transformed.

WE ARE BIRDS  The California Indian Story

For many indigenous people living in the US today, the past had been cut off from them. We Are Birds Director Albert Chacon discovered this history through the tradition of birdsinging – bird songs are the oral tradition of passing down the family’s story through song and dance. The old rituals designed to keep history and spirit of the family and tribe alive.

As Chacon discovered the traditions, he began talking with other birdsingers and discovered others in the same situation. There men and women were also finding out about their history through this tradition and building new ways to (re)create ritual and community meaning. We Are Birds is the result of interviews at powwows and other events on Southern California reservations.

Here is our conversation with Chacon and several birdsingers in this documentary. Thanks to so much to everyone involved in the podcast, what a joyous conversation!

If you haven’t seen the documentary, beware, we do talk about the whole film and there may be spoilers.

Derek Duro (Head Birdsinger, Dancer)

WIND RIVER the movie & #WhyWeWearRED #MeTOO #TimesUP

TAKE A LISTEN: http://directory.libsyn.com/episode/index/id/7278578/tdest_id/818063

Description

Wind River, written and directed by Taylor Sheridan, is the story of Cory Lambert (Jeremy Renner), a wildlife officer who finds the body of an 18-year-old woman on an American Indian reservation in snowy Wyoming. Young FBI agent Jane Banner (Elizabeth Olsen) arrives to investigate. This Florida native must work with Lambert as a guide, to get to the bottom of why a young woman would run miles, barefoot, in the late night snow. Cory is also haunted by the death of his teen daughter just a few years prior to the opening of the film. He finds that must help Banner confront the violence young women face on the Wyoming reservation.

As follow up to our discussion of the film, Wind River, we are joined by partners in the Native Women in Film & Television organization. Native Women in Film & Television is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting equal opportunities for American Indian & Indigenous women, encouraging the creative narrative by native women, exploring and empowering portrayals of women in all forms of global media, expanding empowerment initiatives for native women and girls, in the arts, media, social justice, civic engagement, economic empowerment, research, training and international relations.

We discuss why some organizations supporting Native Women find their struggle portrayed in Taylor Sheridan’s film. Why it resonates with many native women and how it might support the #WhyWeWearRed, #TimesUp, and #MeToo online movements to recognize trauma affecting millions of women.
