Adjusting the Focus: Counterpoints to Media Stereotypes of Native Peoples
May 14, 2011
In conjunction with Behind the Scenes: The Real Story of the Quileute Wolves, SAM and Native Voices, University of Washington’s Indigenous Documentary Film Program, examine stereotypes and constructed Indian identities such as those in the Twilight saga films. Join us for screenings of segments from Native Voices' recent films that provide a counterpoint to racism in the media, and a discussion about imagery, authenticity and real-world implications of misrepresentation.
Free with museum admission.
Registration required if planning to attend.
