2016 Native Youth Media and Tech Workshops

2016 was a huge year as we worked with eight tribes, tribal organizations and travelled back to Morocco! Native and indigenous youth produced several films, documentaries and more that were showcased at our annual film festival.

In June, we expanded our outreach to Oklahoma and collaborated with the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma. Iowa youth produced several films about their tribal history and longstanding pow wow:
