Native American films around the country often fall beneath the radar because of low funding and low publicity, but Elise Marrubio of Augsburg College, sees the potential for social change and understanding through the screening of these obscure films. After a several year hiatus, Marrubio is coordinating her sixth annual Augsburg Native American Film Series (NAFS) which covers an array of topics from adoption and Catholic boarding schools to Native American land issues.
The screenings takes place on the Augsburg campus and are open to the public. KFAI reporter Michelle Alimoradi spoke with Marrubio about how the series is re-shaping native and non-native relations in the community.
For more information on the screening dates, times and artist information visit the NAFS website .
