Exiled NDNZ Turning into Full-Fledged Documentary

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown January 14th, 2015 Last Updated on: January 14th, 2015

You might remember last year we shared a story about Exiled NDNz, a photography project by Pamela J. Peters, a Navajo woman living in Los Angeles. As a UCLA student, she saw a film called The Exiles, by Kent Mackenzie. She was amazed that back in 1961, there was a film that showed a true depiction of American Indians, especially at a time when Hollywood cinema was creating stereotypes of American Indians, especially in Western films. This film inspired Peters to make a modern film about American Indians currently living in Los Angeles today.

“We are still here” we want to share our stories from our own voices.

They are expanding the short multimedia film project into a FULL-DOCUMENTARY as shown in the short clip above. But a full production means additional funding is needed. They've started an IndieGoGo campaign to help with costs of production. Maybe you can give a donation to make our stories become a reality!
