in·dig·e·nous

I was invited to an event recently put on by the Alabama Indigenous Coalition. On October 14, the holiday known by the state of Alabama officially as “Columbus Day/American Indian Heritage Day/Fraternal Day,” the Coalition held a “Call to Action Rally and Info Session to Abolish Columbus Day.”

The event was held in 1977 Books, located in Kress on Dexter, and was followed by a march to the State Capitol and a smudging ceremony.

I decided to film some footage and a couple of interviews while attending the event, and I’ve put together a short documentary film about the event, titled in·dig·e·nous.

The film can be seen on YouTube.

A photographer with the Montgomery Advertiser was there as well. They published some photos here. (I look like I’m about to get hit by a car in one of them 🙂)

Thanks for reading/watching.
