Is our society’s conversation around Native Americans changing?

Nov 10, 2015

 On the November 10th edition of Your Call, we’ll talk about efforts to raise awareness about Native American history. 

Most people don’t know that November is Native American Heritage Month. It’s hardly in the news. This week, the American Indian Film Institute celebrates its 40th film festival. Native Americans say the truth about genocide has been covered up for too long, but we are seeing gradual changes from the classroom to cities that now celebrate Indigenous People’s Day rather than Columbus Day.  

Is our society’s conversation around Native Americans changing? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.  

Guests:

Pamela Pierce, producer of a Thousand Voices 

Ben-Alex Dupris, co-director of The 7th Wave

Derrick J. LaMere, co-director of The 7th Wave
