Mohawk Nation: Then, Now, the Future
October 13 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
This event, one of two from Third World Newsreel and Paul Smith’s College, are conceived as windows into the histories of indigenous people and windows that open onto the possibilities for the future.
Ganienkeh is the independent land of the Mohawk people in upstate New York, whose sovereignty was re-established in 1974. Planned in collaboration with the Ganienkeh, this pair of programs focuses on indigenous activism and current challenges to survival. The event will included discussion of the process of cultural solidarity and creating innovative media practices.
This October program, organized by Professor Annie Rochon (Kanehsatake) of Paul Smith’s College with Third World Newsreel and the Ganienkeh people, will feature 2 rarely seen films: MOHAWK NATION (Allan Siegel with Third World Newsreel and the Ganienkeh, 1978) and a clip from YOU ARE ON INDIAN LAND (Michael Kanentakeron Mitchel, 1969) and OHERO: KON UNDER THE HUSK (Katsitsionni Fox, 2016) and speakers including Prof. Ulises Mejias (Oswego, SUNY), filmmakers Katsitsionni Fox and Allan Siegel, Dr. Curt Stager and members of the Ganienkeh.
