Don’t miss the finale for the Native Heritage Film Series this weekend.
The Idaho Mythweaver, the Sandpoint Library and Vision Maker Media will host two free screenings of “For the Generations: Native Story and Performance” on Saturday, March 11 at 12:30 and 3 p.m. at the Sandpoint Library.
Native American performers infuse contemporary genres of dance and music with traditional elements from their Tribal heritage. Through artist interviews and performances, six profiles document the effort to bring the “Native Fusion” genre to mainstream performing arts.
As always, there will be a discussion after the film led by Idaho Mythweaver’s Jane Fritz. There will also be light refreshments provided.
The Native Heritage Film Series runs from November through March every year, highlighting important films touching on issues dealing with Native American relations.
