Examining Tribal Identity Through Film

Feb 2, 2012

Fri. 2/03 11a: “OK BREATHE AURALEE” is a film gracing audiences at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. It exposes some of the intricacies of Native life. 

Focusing on the themes of adoption and the life choices that follow, the film is in line with the current push to tell Native stories from a real life standpoint.

When the whole idea of interpreting and understanding Native identity is thrown upon the silver screen, what is the reward?

Guests include Native filmmaker Brooke Swaney (Blackfeet/Salish), and composer/musician Laura Ortman (White Mountain Apache).
