New Docu-series Aims to Showcase Modern Native Life

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown August 3rd, 2014 Last Updated on: August 3rd, 2014

Black Castle Productions along with host Rick Mora hope to get a new documentary series off the ground called Native America, but they need your help.

What is Native America? Native America is meant to inspire, educate and open the average American’s eyes to the mystery of life on a reservation and the diverse people who struggle to survive AND thrive there. Spotlighting each tribes diversity and drawing parallels to other cultures throughout America.

NativeAmerica1Each tribe is amazingly different not only in ceremonies and rituals but also with their relationship, history and treaties with the US government. Some tribes like the Seminoles are thriving while others like The Pine Ridge Reservation is one of the poorest in the United States with a 70% poverty rate and 60% of their children are in the foster care system waiting for adoption. Why is this? Native America will shed light on these topics along with many other mysteries of Native Americans all through THEIR perspective and words.

In each episode, they will visit and showcase one to two tribes depending on the size of the tribe.

Of course with any television show, there are production costs. You can help offset these costs by donating to their IndieGogo campaign. Please visit Indiegogo Native America for more details. I really can't wait to see this series!

Trisha

I can’t wait to see this show. I am married to a Native
American who Mother was a member of a small tribe in Northern California. I have learned quite a lot from his family and their customs and thoughts. We are not rich people but if we can assist please so advise.

I hope that if you are calling this the truth that you will also include a disclaimer stating that it was people that only claimed to be Christians that did the horrible things to the Native Americans and not people that really knew or understood who and what Christ and God are truly about!

Too many times I have seen so much anger for God and Christ cuz these people have perverted their names. I hope that you will not trade one set of lies for another and therefore put yourselves in the same light as the people that came over here.

As long as this show series doesn’t pretend that State recognized incorporated Indian-ist organizations are TRIBES then I will watch this. The mili-second they begin to pretend that State recognized incorporated Indian-ist organizations that claim to be legitimate TRIBES or Tribal Nations, or Sovereign is the mili-second I get up, and change the channel. I will support and advocate for legitimate Native Community and People’s; not the phoney Indian-ist State Recognized Wannabiak.

I don’t have money but I really have been disappointed there are not more Native American programs out there. Spanish American before Native is wrong on more levels than should be tolerated! Anything I can do gladly will to support!

I can’t wait to watch this show. I’ve always had an interest in the true americans, the natives of this great country. I want to learn about their life,survival, medicine, love, hunting, religion(spirit life).
