Native Wisdom Films

  • April 15, 2017 – April 15, 2017

Wisdom of the Elders, a Portland cultural organization, records and preserves the history and arts — music, dance, storytelling and traditional arts — of exemplary Native Americans and shares them through a variety of multimedia productions and public events throughout the region. We are pleased to co-present with Wisdom of the Elders a special Native Wisdom Films Festival featuring four recently produced films through their Climate and Native Wisdom Films project, which explores the impact of environmental change on the cultural and economic lives of Native peoples in the Northwest. Accompanying the films is a selection of shorts made by students in Wisdom’s Native Film Academy.
