Native American Heritage Month 2022 Film Series

In recognition of Native American Heritage Month, each November the SUNY Cortland Native American Studies Program hosts a film series. Our second film in this year's series is available now for on-demand viewing through November 30th.

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.
