Join the National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition and Independent Indigenous Film and Media for a free six-day video production workshop.
Independent Filmmakers, Missy Whiteman and Isaac Larsen and NABS Executive, Christine Diindiisi McCleave, are inviting 20 Youth (ages 12-24) to participate in creating a passionate film/video about boarding school healing in the Alaska. The videos created will be part of the Healing Voices Video Series sponsored by the National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition.
Youth will learn about media/film production, editing, and boarding school history and impacts. Youth will film elders healing stories about boarding schools, and edit the videos to be screened (viewed) at the end of the training.
The Healing Voices story collection is about highlighting stories of healing, resiliency, and hope.
All youth who successfully complete the training will receive a $50 Visa gift card! (Limited to 20 youth.)
