Panel: Native American Women vs. Hollywood Stereotypes

Coming soon to the American Indian Film Festival on Nov.12 in SF @ 10:00 a.m.

AIFI seminars bring noted industry professionals to San Francisco to teach, inspire and share their knowledge with current and the next generation of media makers. These programs are free and open to the public. Advance registration required.

This panel explores the stereotypes of Native women in Hollywood from the common portrayal of the "Indian Princess" to the modern Native woman today. Panelists include Shirley Cheechoo, Carole Nee-ta-key Marie, Larissa Fasthorse, Kateri Walker and Casey Camp-Horinek.

The panel will screen Total Silence by Carole Nee-ta-key Marie, a compelling documentary that offers Native American women a opportunity to voice how they have been affected by Hollywood's stereotyped images.
