We are excited to partner with Timberwolf Productions Club to bring you the first film in this year’s Diversity Film Series sponsored by select student clubs, Student Life, the Diversity Committee and the NTC Library.
Monday, October 1
Theater Room (near the Graphics Lab)
Reel Injun explores stereotypes about Natives in film, from the noble savage to the drunken Indian. It profiles such figures as Iron Eyes Cody, an Italian American who reinvented himself as a Native American on screen. The film also explores Hollywood's practice of using Italian Americans and American Jews to portray Indians in the movies and reveals how some Native American actors made jokes in their native tongue on screen when the director thought they were simply speaking gibberish.
All students are invited to join us for this free event! And, if you're a member of a student club, participation may earn your club $20.
