Native American Heritage Month Film Festival: Defending the Fire

November 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Defending the Fire https://vimeo.com/217551306 The Native
American Warrior has been a focus of Native and Non-Native interest
since the time of early petroglyphs. The perception of the Warrior has
been communicated through books, lore, television and film as a stoic
fighter, and savage aggressor, one who retaliated for lost lands, and
the constant enemy of the white rancher or soldier. Rarely has the
Warrior been seen outside the Indian world with the more accurate
recognition of the reluctant fighter, seeking to defend and protect a
culture and lands, against all odds. To Protect and defend – the
cohesive thread that connects generations and tribes. This film allows
the viewer to follow the journey of the Warrior as he (and she)
continue conflict resolution in order to survive and secure resources
and culture. The answers to Why Fight remain true through time; the
need for Warriors continues. There will always be warriors. “What we
do to the Earth, we do to ourselves” and therefore, there will always
be warriors.” (Chief Joseph).
