Join us, this Friday, August 20th at the Seattle Outdoor Movies at the Mural (9pm).

FEATURE FILM: BOY
Boy is a dreamer who loves Michael Jackson. He lives with his brother Rocky, a tribe of deserted cousins and his Nan. Boy’s other hero, his father Alamein, is the subject of Boy’s fantasies, and he imagines him as a deep sea diver, war hero and a close relation of Michael Jackson. In reality Alamein is an inept, wannabe gangster who has been in jail for robbery. When Alamein returns home after seven years away, Boy is forced to confront the man he thought he remembered, find his own potential and learn to get along without the hero he had been hoping for. Film courtesy of Te Tumu Whakaata Taonga New Zealand Film Commission.

Jana Schmieding Reveals The 'Rutherford Falls' Moment That Made Her "Weep"

Jana Schmieding is particularly proud of helping create Episode 4 of #RutherfordFalls, which focuses on Michael Greyeyes’ character Terry.

“It was one of those episodes where I was weeping at times, but by the end, I was giving a standing ovation,” she says.

‘Malni — Towards the Ocean, Towards the Shore’ Review: Embracing Our Ghosts

Sky Hopinka's Małni — Towards the Ocean, Towards the Shore is a New York Times top pick, and we are screening it!! Catch it to celebrate this Earth Day, or through the moody next couple days to come. Tickets and info at nwfilmforum.org/calendar

///

An essential portrait of contemporary Indigenous life that resists the touristic gaze, “Małni — Towards the Ocean, Towards the Shore,” the debut feature from the Ho-Chunk artist and filmmaker Sky Hopinka, isn’t too concerned with whether we fully understand the traditions and rituals it entrancingly commits to screen. It refreshingly centers the Native perspective, and beckons audiences onto its wavelength by tapping into something more intuitive, the stuff of dreams.

“You don’t have to say much,” says one of the film’s two subjects, Sweetwater Sahme, as she leads the filmmaker on a hike through the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, gesturing at the quivering foliage. “It’s a feeling, an energy. And there’s so much to look at.”

The documentary, anchored in the Chinookan origin-of-death myth (a dialogue between a wolf and a coyote about the afterlife), separately follows two young parents — pregnant Sahme and Jordan Mercier, both friends of Hopinka’s — as they grapple with questions of legacy and identity.

“It has to do with the way that Nuxalk people lived and treated things,” explained Hanuse. “They took care of others, the land and the waters, so people didn’t feed themselves until every other living being had a chance to eat. To me it represents the bigger picture of what’s going on within ourselves and our lives.”

🦋 🍓 "This coming-of-age story is a meditation on growing up, the seen and unseen forces that trap families in poverty, and coming into one’s own as a working woman in the wealthiest nation in the world. Filming the struggle of the laborers who feed America to feed themselves, Fruits of Labor offers a new narrative about women workers that highlights how the global food system intersects with gender and family life."

Our community engagement coordinator had fun collaborating with the Voter Education Fund’s other Native grantee Indigenous Showcase. Their mission is to, “create a platform for community dialogue, supports Indigenous arts and highlights stories made by or from the perspective of the Indigenous voice.” Together they created the Facebook live series, ‘Cafe Conversations with Katie & Chloe’ which aired every week on Wednesdays leading up to the presidential election for a total of 7 episodes. Each show covered important dates, resources and Native voting facts with a giveaway at the end. We are grateful to have had special guests such as Theresa Sheldon, Matt Remle, and Haley from King County Elections. Special thanks to their production dynamic duo Eleni and Raven. #nativenonprofits #kcvotes #getouttheNativevote

Statement of Solidarity and Support for All Our Relations and Allies in Minneapolis Seattle WA, June 3, 2020 On behalf of the organizations that make up Seattle Urban Native Nonprofits, we express our resolute support for the Metropolitan Urban Indian Directors (MUID), and the communities you serve, in the pursuit of justice for George Floyd, and all people of color, who have been victims of the Minneapolis Police Department. We stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter. We denounce anti-blackness and settler colonialism. We recognize the power of Black and Indigenous solidarity to honor intersectional identities in our collective liberation. Although we are more than 1,500 miles away, the grave injustice of the brutal police killing of George Floyd is deeply emblematic of the thousands of people that continue to be subjected to police brutality in our communities since colonization. We bear witness to this trauma experienced by your community in the past few days, and long before now. We know your roots in the urban landscape are similar to ours in Seattle. Our cities share a history of genocide, relocation, economic oppression, cultural violence, and health disparities that result from racist policies and systems. We continue to resist these systemic attempts of erasure through many generations of organizing and activism. We have family members, friends, and professional allies who call your city home. We will continue to ensure this tragic moment is not forgotten. Whether we light sage or cedar, we pray for those impacted by police violence. Seattle Urban Native Nonprofits deeply grieves for the recent losses in your community and offer our support for MUID, MIGIZI, the broader Black, Brown, and Native communities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. We believe with full hearts that our communities hold solutions and strategies that can create the equitable change we all seek. In the teachings of our Coast Salish relatives, we lift up our hands in gratitude for your work, and we stand ready to support you. In the spirit of Our Ancestors, Seattle Urban Native Nonprofits _____________________________________________________ Seattle Urban Native Nonprofits envisions a healthy, safe, and thriving Native community in the Pacific Northwest. Our organizations include: Chief Seattle Club Duwamish Tribal Services Indigenous Showcase (Longhouse Media) Na’ah Illahee Fund National Urban Indian Family Coalition Native Action Network Native American Women’s Dialogue on Infant Mortality Northwest Justice Project – Native American Unit Potlatch Fund Red Eagle Soaring Seattle Indian Health Board United Indians of All Tribes Foundation Urban Native Education Alliance Seattle Urban Native Nonprofits (SUNN) collaborative convenes and strengthens Native-led organizations throughout King County to build collective power through dialog, education, action, and advocacy. To increase the well-being of our urban Native family, we call upon Indigenous strength, resilience, and wisdom to address systemic inequities and galvanize community-centered solutions.
