Image from America Divided: Who Owns the Land?

This Fall 2020 semester, a film series and discussion forum has been planned that focuses on historic and contemporary issues facing indigenous peoples that often go unnoticed. Films will be screened independently, and are available through Kanopy. A discussion will then be held via Zoom to facilitate a dialogue on the issues raised in each film and the implications they have for today. This opportunity is open to any interested member of the Illinois State University community. This film series is sponsored by:

Posters with the words Who Owns the Past?, America Divided, and Return on them

Posters from films in the Native American Film Series.

The Student Counseling Services’ Multicultural Outreach Team/The School of Theatre and Dance/Native American Studies/Ethnic Studies/Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies/The Department of History/and The Department of Sociology and Anthropology
