November is Native American Heritage Month

Today’s guest blog post is by AAA Member, Guven Peter Witteveen.

We Still Live here

In honor of Native American Heritage Month, PBS will stream We Still Live Here for free throughout November. The film is especially relevant now, as it features members of the Wampanoag Tribes of Massachusetts, descendants of the people we celebrate every Thanksgiving for the help they gave the “Pilgrims.” We Still Live Here tells the near miraculous story of present-day Wampanoags reclaiming their language and rediscovering their culture. Click here to stream for free at PBS.org, or buy the DVD on their site Here.

The Haiti Story You Won’t Read

AAA member, Dr. Gina Athena Ulysse shares her opinion on the PBS’ Op-Ed project, Voices. In her piece, The Haiti Story You Won’t Read, Ulysse looks beyond the media’s limelight of the one-year anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti to examine the deeper issues and influences of the nation’s rebuilding efforts.
