NY Times: A Conversation With Native Americans on Race


Posted By Toyacoyah Brown August 15th, 2017 Blog



Great video from The New York Times’s Emmy-award-winning and Oscar-nominated short documentary series!

In this series which explores the “Conversation on Race”, filmmakers speak with Native Americans about identity, blood quantum and other issues.

Message from the filmmakers:

“Despite the broad spectrum of indigenous identities who participated in our conversation, they shared the experience of living away from their respective reservations and communities.

We hope that this piece helps inspire more online and offline conversations that include an even wider range of Native voices living in, around and beyond reservation communities.”
