Celebrate Native American Heritage Month by watching Indigenous cinema.

The National Museum of the American Indian brings its annual Native Cinema Showcase to online audiences November 12–18. The showcase provides a unique forum for engagement with Native filmmakers from Indigenous communities throughout the Western Hemisphere and the Arctic.

The program includes a total of 47 films (seven features and 40 shorts) representing 39 Native nations in 13 countries: United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Guatemala, Peru, Brazil, Sweden, Greenland and the Solomon Islands.

Filmmaker panels, all 40 shorts and three of the feature films, What Happened to the Bees? (¿Qué les pasó a las abejas?), Inhabitants: An Indigenous Perspective, and Rez Metal, will be available for online streaming worldwide. Audiences in the United States also have access to Waikiki, Beans, The Song of the Butterflies (El Canto de las Mariposas), and Run Woman Run.
