MISSOULA – The University of Montana American Indian Student Services will host the Indigenous Film Series each Wednesday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Sept. 18-Nov. 20, in The Payne Family Native American Center Room 201. 

“This semester we will be showing several outstanding documentaries,” said Fredricka Hunter, director of UM AISS. “It is our hope the films will instigate rich dialogue that will lead to better understanding and insight for everyone.”

The film series will kick off with a showing of “Dakota 38,” a film about one man's vision to help his kin heal from the largest hanging in U.S. history, ordered by President Abraham Lincoln in 1862.

“It's a powerful and beautiful film,” Hunter said.

The film series is free open to the public. The schedule is:

  • Sept 18: “Dakota 38”
  • Sept 25: “Broken Rainbow”
  • Oct 2: “Video Letters From Prison”
  • Oct 9: “Hopi-Songs of the Fourth World”
