The Drums of October : Legacy of a Pernicious Hero {video}

Indigenous people express themselves on the issues of history, education, Christopher Columbus and the controversial national holiday named for him. The 2000 Columbus Day parade protest in Denver is woven throughout this compelling video.  "Drums" (22 minutes) is the latest work of videographer Lori Windle (Ojibwe), and features music by Cary Morin (Crow) and the Atoll.
