To honor Native American Heritage History Month, World Channel will host more than 40 films and a streamed panel discussion exploring Native American culture and history. The films are presented in partnership with Vision Maker Media.
November 13, 7 pm ET — Warrior Women
The American Indian Movement began in 1968 to address poverty and police brutality against Native Americans. Warrior Women, which premiered on World Channel last year, focuses on mothers and daughters like Madonna Thunder Hawk and Marcy Gilbert who attempt to juggle family commitments with the demands of sustaining the movement.
November 17, 8 pm – America ReFramed: Blood Memory
Between 1958 and 1967, sometimes referred to as America’s Indian Adoption Era, 35 percent of Native American children were forcibly removed from their tribes for adoption by white families. This documentary focuses on Sandy White Hawk, an adoption survivor who helps organize the first annual Welcome Home Ceremony in the community from which she was removed more than 60 years ago.

Panelists discussing “Tribal Sovereignty and Home” will include Misty Frazier, executive director of the Nebraska Indian Child Welfare Coalition; Laura L. Harris, executive director and CEO of Americans for Indian Opportunity; and Jim Gray, former principal chief of the Osage Nation. Investigative journalist and media critic Jenni Monet will host.
