The following documentaries and movies are provided to encourage open discussion about the way Native Americans are portrayed in
television and movies. There is also an educational aspect to the movies and documentaries included. The doucumentary Dakota 38+2 shows us how in
history there was violence on both sides from the whites and from Native Americans. The Native Americans were defending their homeland, and the white people
thought they could settle on the land because the government didn't stop them. We believe this movie is showing how a long time ago wasn't right. During
this day and age, people have mixed with all races of people, and it is time to heal the pain from the past. Countries have had war with one another and now
are no longer enemies. The Colorado Springs Indian Center feels this movie has a message that is good to share. The Dakota 38+2 shows us that it takes a lot
of strength to not hate, forgive and live in peace.
While some of the stories in the documentaries are discussing topics of a sensitive nature, we believe it is important for peace of mind, healing and reconciliation. Please discuss Native American history, traditions and culture with your friends and family.
