FREE Streaming of 40 Native Films Featured on PBS

The same year our nation celebrated its bicentennial and President Ford proclaimed a week in October as "Native American Awareness Week," six Native producers in public television met to charter the Native American Public Broadcasting Consortium (NAPBC), later known as Native American Public Telecommunications (NAPT) and now Vision Maker Media. 

It was 1976 when these Native producers began to cultivate interest among Native American tribes to participate in developing their own media, which led to the initiation of several tribal media projects. One such project, American Indian Artists produced in 1986, was a three-part series featuring the art and lives of Dan Namingha (Hopi/Tewa), Jaune Quick-To-See Smith (Shoshone/French/Cree), and Larry Golsh (Pala Mission Indian). Watch | Films List
