La Donna Harris: Indian 101
  • October 12, 2017 - 7:00pm

Comanche filmmaker Julianna Brannum chronicles the life of Comanche activist and national civil rights leader LA Donna Harris and the role that she has played in Native and mainstream America history since the 1960s. In this new verite style documentary, Brannum, the great niece of Harris, celebrates her life and the personal struggles that led her to become a voice for Native people and her contemporary work to strengthen and rebuild indigenous communities and train emerging Native leaders around the world. Using interviews, archival footage and photographs, this film justly celebrates one of the most important women leaders in Native American and U.S. history.
