Recently, I was honored to participate in Native Public Media's Digital Journalism and Storytelling Course. Literally, at the same time I was in Santa Fe for the Digital Journalism and Storytelling Course, I was working to order the equipment for training of Ponca youth in Oklahoma and Nebraska, so they could tell stories about the importance of home. NAPT is also proud of the role they played in funding five Native youth to participate in the 7th Annual Superfly Filmmaking Experience.

Eleven production contracts from Vision Maker Media have been approved for the delivery of documentary and new media projects to the Public Broadcasting System. “The purpose of this funding is to increase the diversity of voices available to PBS viewers,” says Vision Maker Media Executive Director Shirley K. Sneve (Rosebud Sioux). “We encourage Native Americans to take on significant creative leadership roles, such as director, producer and editor. We want Native voices to have creative control, and not just in an advisory capacity.”

When we watch films, we want to be taken to another place, another time, we want to live vicariously through someone else's experience.  We want to feel the catharsis that allows us to briefly disseminate our feelings out of our bodies.
