National Day of Remembrance, September 30th, 2022.

Friday, September 16, 2022

Join NABS as we screen the short film “Voices from Pezihutazizi Oyate: Boarding School Histories” followed by a panel discussion. Over the past few years NABS has partnered with the Upper Sioux Community on a digitization and oral history project, one of the results of this partnership was a short film looking at the unique experiences of the Yellow Medicine Nation.

The panel will be moderated by NABS Creative Director Kenrick Escalanti and will feature community members and experts.

Documentary description:
As hurtful truths come to light in the public eye regarding historically operated Federal Indian boarding schools in the United States, many Native Nations are reclaiming their voices regarding these assimilative educational institutions. For the Upper Sioux Community (“Yellow Medicine Nation”) living in Minnesota, these historical truths are known to have cast profound ripples that effect their present. This mini documentary explores community interpretations of this boarding school past and offers hope for justice and healing.
