FVCC to Host Salish/Kootenai Film Series
The series will open with the showing of “Remembering the Songs” Feb. 3
The community is invited to a two-day Salish and Kootenai film series presented by the HeartLines Project and hosted by Flathead Valley Community College’s Multicultural Affairs Office.

The series will open with the showing of “Remembering the Songs” Feb. 3. This multi-media project explores the music traditions of the Salish, Diné and Zuni people and their common usage of the flute throughout their diverse traditions.

The following day, “ReDefined Art & Identity” will examine the personal, cultural and professional insights of several Salish and Kootenai artists on western Montana’s Flathead Reservation.

HeartLines Project Executive Director Julie Cajune was involved in the production of both films and will lead a discussion directly following each film. Cajune is a member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes and is an award-winning educator, profiled in Utne Reader as one of “50 Visionaries who are Changing the World.”

The HeartLines Project researches, develops and publishes tribally-specific stories, histories, articles and place-based knowledge for youth and adults. The project promotes and supports the production of various media which document and provide accessible, authentic and meaningful portrayals of the history, stories and contemporary experiences of American Indian people and their nations.

Free and open to the public, both showings will begin at 6 p.m. in the large community meeting room inside the Arts and Technology Building on the college campus. Raffle tickets will be sold at each showing for a chance to win a Chromebook notebook computer. Proceeds from the raffle will support the FVCC American Indian Student Services Office. For more information, contact Mick Stemborski at 756-3945 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
