Screen this Acclaimed Documentary During Native American Heritage Month
On Monday, a growing number of towns, cities, and states across the country will celebrate Indigenous People’s Day, setting the stage for Native American Heritage Month in November.
If you’re an educator or community organizer looking to program events for Native American Heritage Month, we encourage you to set up a virtual or in-person screening of the acclaimed film More Than a Word, a powerful look at the long, increasingly successful struggle to eliminate racist Native American team names and mascots.
Directed by filmmakers John and Kenn Little of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, More Than a Word offers a deeply personal account of the injustices done to indigenous peoples, the inequities that still plague Native American communities, and the cultural stereotypes that have helped normalize both.
If you sign up to host a virtual screening of More Than a Word between now and October 15th, you’ll get 15% off! We’ll also send you a screening guide (complete with a full digital & social media toolkit) to help you program a successful virtual or in-person event.
