Feature Film
1:00 PM - Indian 101, by Julianna Braumann, Comanche filmmaker, 63 minutes                   
Indian 101 is a feature documentary film about Comanche activist LaDonna Harris, who led an extensive life of Native political and social  activism, and is now passing on her traditional cultural and leadership values to a new generation of emerging Indigenous leaders. Harris’ introduction to the federal government began when President Lyndon Johnson assigned her to educate the executive and legislative branches of the U.S. government on the unique role of American Indian Tribes and their relationship with the federal government. This course was called “Indian 101” and was taught to members of Congress and other agencies for over 35 years.
