  • As Native Voice TV will be attending the National Native Media Conference please consider the following 'Truths' : From ancient petroglyphs and cave paintings to the Cherokee Phoenix, the first newspaper published in the U.S., in both English and Cherokee in 1828, Native Americans have always found ways to connect with each other in their unique languages. Native journalists combine print, audio and visual elements to tell their own stories in a fresh way, while preserving and maintaining their distinct cultural identities. By fusing traditional storytelling elements with the use of modern digital tools to deliver news, initiate social change through the education of citizens and empower media-makers covering Indian Country, the Native American Journalists Association (NAJA) will celebrate 30 years of the National Native Media Conference and “Going Tra-Digital” in Santa Clara, Calif., July 10-13, 2014.

  • Today Starting at Noon - 10 PM: Tuesday 10th of November: @ the American Indian Film Festival in San Francisco: NOWHERE LAND DIRECTOR: BONNIE AMMAAQ 15 MINUTES • DOCUMENTARY SHORT • CANADA When Bonnie Ammaaq was a little girl, her parents packed up their essentials, bundled Bonnie and her younger brother into a long, fur-lined sled called a qamutik, and left the government- manufactured community of Igloolik to live off the land as had generations of Inuit before them. For eleven years their home was not just the small shack called “Outpost Camp,” but the whole territory, vast, wild and beautiful, that lay outside its door. Nowhere Land is a quiet elegy for a way of life that exists now only in the memories of Bonnie, her brother and parents, and the few others still living who experienced it. For them, the wild open tundra was not just somewhere to live, it was Somewhere, and the settlement of Igloolik, their home ever since, with its dinning snowmobiles, flat and snowy landscapes and relative hustle-bustle, is strictly Nowhere.

  • Today Starting at Noon - 10 PM: Tuesday 10th of November: @ the American Indian Film Festival in San Francisco: SEEDS OF OUR ANCESTORS: NATIVE YOUTH AWAKENING TO FOODWAYS DIRECTOR: MATEO HINOJOSA 12 MINUTES • DOCUMENTARY SHORT • USA Seeds of our Ancestors grows out of the poetic explorations of native urban youth as they struggle to overcome trauma caused by colonized/industrial foods and awaken to the healing and nourishment of native foodways from their own traditions and those of others. Learning from teachers and traditional ecological knowledge-bearers steeped in traditions as diverse as California Maidu, Yucatec Maya and Seneca, the youth root down into the cultural soils that support ancient and vital foodways traditions, including crop cultivation, acorn processing, cooking, seed-saving and simply sharing food in community. This documentary was co-created with the young native participants of a Native Foodways and Media Youth Internship in San Francisco, California, Turtle Island. The group’s collective process included learning the new technology of audiovisual storytelling to serve the ancestral technology of native foodways. This co-creative journey manifests itself in interwoven voices and organic montage which explore the most pressing concerns of the young participants: cultural healing, ecological health, the history of disease caused by processed foods, and the current problems of food deserts in impoverished urban areas. Balancing these dire social and ecological issues are hope-inspiring stories as well as soundscapes that create percussive music from the sounds of harvesting corn and grinding acorns.

  • Wed. 11th in San Francisco from Noon till 10 PM: American Indian Film Festival: COVERED DIRECTOR: JONATHON MB HUNTER 7 MINUTES • DOCUMENTARY SHORT • CANADA NOMINATED: Best Live Short 'Covered' is a short docudrama of an unseen TV interview of folk singer, activist and legend, Buffy Sainte-Marie that aired in Toronto, Canada in 1966. Through the raw and delicate honesty of this artist's message in concert and conversation, the film attempts to bridge the gap between past and present, documenting the plight of Native colonization in North America up to our corporate day, Alberta Oil Sands. This film is about the modern relevance of Buffy’s message—her voice echoes loudly, even today. It tells of the courage it took for a young woman to remain true to herself and unearth something that has been buried in plain sight. Since her first hit 'Universal Soldier' the pacifist song in 1964, covered by Donovan, The Highwaymen, Joan Baez, Glen Campbell and more, to her Native American themed songs in the 1970s, her work was actively censored by the FBI. In the late 1970s she left the U.S. because of 'poor record sales' finding out decades later from the 1980s to the early 2000s, the American Lyndon Baines Johnson Administration had forbidden radio stations to play her music and that the FBI and CIA were keeping a file on her. Nevertheless Buffy was always kept afloat by the financial success of her love songs which were covered by the likes of Elvis Presley, Barbra Streisand, Neil Diamond, Roberta Flack, Cher, Bobby Darin--just to name a few, and as such, courageously maintained her status as a renowned singer-songwriter, educator and native rights activist.

  • Friday 13th of November: Starting at Noon - 10PM at the American Indian Film Festival "40 Anniversary" @ AMC Metreon 16 Theatres (San Francisco: 4th and Mission -- 3rd Floor): ETLINISIGU’NET (BLEED DOWN) DIRECTOR: JEFF BARNABY 4 MINUTES• LIVE SHORT • USA Jeff Barnaby’s Etlinisigu’niet (Bleed Down) destroys any remaining shreds of the mythology of a fair and just Canada. His message is clear: we are still here. Attempts to “get rid of the Indian problem” have failed. The future is coming. A howl of pain rips across the land in Etlinisigu’niet as traditional life gives way to First Nations being starved to ensure compliance with government orders. Children forced from their families and penned into the horrors of residential school. Men, women and children examined like livestock in crowded tuberculosis clinics, where policies that could have prevented thousands of deaths were willfully suppressed, resulting in the highest death tolls from the disease ever reported anywhere in the world. And the land and water continue to be poisoned for industry and profit at the cost of Aboriginal lives. Tanya Tagaq’s “Tulugak” carries the voice of the land through Barnaby’s poem of rage. For Barnaby, this is a fierce cry for reckoning and a visceral indictment of Canada’s genocide against First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples.

Once 75 million strong, wild bison were slaughtered almost to extinction by European settlers by the 1890s, both for their hides and as part of a larger policy to eliminate the main food source of the First Nations of the plains. Around the same time, residential schools were established to remove Aboriginal children from their families in order to assimilate them into mainstream Canadian society. The powwow-step rhythms of Tribe Called Red’s “The Road” drive home the legacy of loss and pain inflicted by more than a century of abuse and neglect. Sisters & Brothers mourns the preventable deaths of thousands of Aboriginal children in residential schools while honouring the resiliency of Canada’s First Peoples. Sisters & Brothers is part of Souvenir, a four-film series addressing Aboriginal identity and representation by reworking material in the NFB’s archives.
