Comanche filmmaker Julianna Brannum’s documentary chronicles the life of Comanche activist and national civil rights leader, LaDonna Harris, and the role that she has played fighting segregation and assisting grassroots Native and women’s groups. In Washington D.C., LaDonna introduced landmark programs and legislation returning territory to tribes, improving education and healthcare for Native Americans. She was among many who successfully lobbied Congress and the White House for the return of Blue Lake to Taos Pueblo.
This film is shown in conjunction with the exhibition, Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Return of Blue Lake to Taos Pueblo: A New Day for American Indians, on view at the Harwood Museum of Art through April 17.
