“Indigenous Media-Making: Land, Language, Relationship” is a series of presentations coordinated by Documentarian in Community Co-Creation AngelaBeallor and presented by the MDOCS Co-Creation Initiative at Skidmore College. Inspired by our ongoing collaborative work with Kanatsiohareke and Ndakinna Education Center, this series aims to highlight Indigenous media-makers. We will hear about language reclamation efforts, Indigenous creative work and community collaboration, and the ways that explorations of land, culture, and history inform their artistic practices.
