A History Lesson

Posted by Greg Petersen on 04/12 at 03:42 PM

New series from AMERICAN EXPERIENCE tells a story we thought we knew.

Monday night beginning at 9pm, AMERICAN EXPERIENCE will premiere a new series about a people and a history we really don’t know all that well.

At the heart of the project is a five-part television series that shows how Native-Americans valiantly resisted expulsion from their lands and fought the extinction of their culture—from the Wampanoags of New England in the 1600s who used their alliance with the English to weaken rival tribes, to the bold new leaders of the 1970s who harnessed the momentum of the civil rights movement to forge a pan-Indian identity. “We Shall Remain” represents an unprecedented collaboration between Native and non-Native filmmakers and involves Native advisors and scholars at all levels of the project.

It’s a history lesson that may be hard for many to watch, but it’s one we all need to know.
