Cultural Gatekeepers 2

Further to my previous post I feel there are also native gatekeepers on the coasts that see the PC white crowd as their main source of funds and support and end up becoming caught up in this strange very specific view of Indian country and culture. I mean look at the music today on the reservations… the traditional music is worth celebrating but much of the great new art and music is more contemporary and urban. The hip hop and rap may be influenced by other cultures but the words and emotions so often are powerfully of the reservation life and more potent than most contemporary rap from other communities.

    I agree. We’ve seen the “white” influence in factory made Native films. The Native written, directed and produced ones are generally ignored. Cite Georgie’s Older Than America cuz it deals with a subject no one wants to look at. My goal is to produce contemporary films, educate the public that the UPS guy can be Native and spend weekends in regalia at powwows. Need to bring the contemporary Indian into this century. Wilma Man Killer said that years ago… What does anyone know about the 21st Century Indian? Pitifully little. I haven’t read all your info yet. Do you have a distributor? I know someone.

    So far testing self distribution as don’t have faith in those that have shown interest and there are so many corrupt distributors that its easy to get a deal with but you see little back from. But always interested in hearing of new opportunities and contacts that might be different.

    For me Rez Bomb is a truly universal story and I want to see any kind of story set in Indian Country, whether culturally specific or a screwball teen comedy or love story or thriller etc

    Along with every little thing which seems to be developing inside this area, your points of view tend to be quite stimulating. On the other hand, I beg your pardon, but I can not give credence to your whole strategy, all be it stimulating none the less. It would seem to us that your commentary are not completely justified and in reality you are generally yourself not really thoroughly confident of the argument. In any case I did take pleasure in reading it.
