Native American Heritage Month Film Series

In recognition of Native American Heritage Month, each November the SUNY Cortland Native American Studies Program hosts a film series to highlight the histories and cultures of the Indigenous peoples of North America.

2022 Film

The film, Inhabitants: Indigenous Perspectives on Restoring Our World (2021, dir. Boutsikaris and Palmer), “follows five Native American communities as they restore their traditional land management practices in the face of a changing climate.” Featured in the film are the desert farming techniques of the Hopi in Arizona; the buffalo restoration efforts of the Blackfeet in Montana; the sustainable forestry initiatives of the Menominee in Wisconsin; the food sovereignty programs of the Kānaka Maoli in Hawaii; and the prescribed-fire practices of the Karuk in California.

Contact Daniel Radus, coordinator of Native American Studies, for a link to view the film.
