Tonight the second installment in the five part series We Shall Remain
airs on PBS
. "We Shall Remain" is a "provocative multi-media project that establishes Native history as an essential part of American history".
"At the heart of the project is a five-part television series that shows how Native peoples valiantly resisted expulsion from their lands and fought the extinction of their culture -- from the Wampanoags of New England in the 1600s who used their alliance with the English to weaken rival tribes, to the bold new leaders of the 1970s who harnessed the momentum of the civil rights movement to forge a pan-Indian identity. WE SHALL REMAIN represents an unprecedented collaboration between Native and non-Native filmmakers and involves Native advisors and scholars at all levels of the project."
For those without cable TV access to this series, it will be available online after each episode airs. Episode One, After The Mayflower
is currently available.
