River of renewal ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Follows Jack Kohler, a Yurok/Karuk Indian, on a journey of self-discovery in the land of his ancestors. Jack learns about the traditions of his people and their struggles to defend tribal rights and restore the wild salmon of the Klamath River Basin. River of Renewal documents eight years of protest and acts of civil disobedience as Indian tribes, farmers, and commercial fisherman defend their ways of life. The film witnesses a remarkable turnaround. Politically polarized stakeholders and government agencies overcome bitter divisions in reaching a consensus about the future -- a future that could bring the largest dam removal/river restoration project in history."--Container

To honor his dying son's last wish to be buried in his homeland, Chief Standing Bear set off on a grueling, six-hundred-mile journey home. Captured en-route, Standing Bear sued a famous U.S. army general for his freedom--choosing to fight injustice not with weapons, but with words. The Chief stood before the court to prove that an Indian was a person under the law. The story quickly made newspaper headlines-- attracting powerful allies, as well as enemies. Stirring a nation's conscience and challenging the meaning of freedom, Standing Bear's Footsteps chronicles an Indian chief's odyssey, ending in a battle for civil rights unlike any other in American history."

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Since 1992, the Denver Italian-American community has proudly and publicly celebrated Columbus Day with a revived parade-- long a part of the city's history -- much to the dismay of the local American Indian Movement chapter who are equally determined to vilify the man credited with 'discovering' America. The history of this annual parade is peppered with both verbal and physical violence, challenging ideas of political correctness and freedom of assembly. Both the Italian and Native Americans are strong, vibrant, tight-knit communities, a point conveyed by the film as it uncovers conflicting notions of the freedom of speech, the interpretation of history and what it means to be an American"--Container
