Film Description:Counternarratives: Native American Artists in Our Own Words amplifies the varied and meaningful substance of Native American art today. Pueblo, Diné, and Tlingit artists speak about the power of art to strengthen cultural traditions and pathways, to record histories, to heal, and to record the beauty and fragility of nature.

About the project:
Penn Museum's Native American Voices Video project, completed in 2011, was conducted over fourteen months with support from the Annenberg Foundation and Gregory Annenberg Weingarten. The project resulted in the creation of Postindian Warriors: Creating A New Consciousness in Native America, five short videos about contemporary Native America for inclusion in the long-term exhibition, Native American Voices: The People - Here and Now. Five 8 minute films were produced to highlight important themes that emerged from the discussions.
