USA: The Way We Live Now

Categories: U.S.A., Indigenous Communities, Digital Video, Mobile Phones, Social Networking

Mainstream media relegates North American Native people to the past, as stoic images in old photographs or stereotypes in “Western” films. As a Creek/Cherokee woman,I meet people who are surprised that Native Americans still exist. “The Way We Live Now” will help Indigenous people to create short videos and place them online in a curated online venue that displays Natives interacting with daily life in modern ways and dispels stereotypes.
