Indie Lens Pop-Up | Dawnland @ Plaza Branch - Kansas City Public Library
Nov 3 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Indie Lens Pop-Up | Dawnland @ Plaza Branch - Kansas City Public Library | Kansas City | Missouri | United States

The marginalization of Native Americans wasn’t simply a crime of our country’s distant, unenlightened past. The documentary Dawnland chronicles the effort in one state, Maine, to come to terms with a practice that endured through most of the 20th century, when welfare workers removed Wabanaki children from their families and placed them in foster care – presuming that assimilation into white society would improve their quality of life and offer them a better future.

Join KCPT for a free screening and discussion of the film at the Plaza Branch of the Kansas City Public Library on Saturday, November 3 at 2 p.m.

RSVP here.

Indie Lens Pop-Up | Rumble @ Plaza Branch - Kansas City Public Library
Jan 10 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Indie Lens Pop-Up | Rumble @ Plaza Branch - Kansas City Public Library | Kansas City | Missouri | United States

Efforts to marginalize Native Americans and their culture could not diminish their transformational impact on popular music, from the Delta blues and jazz to present-day hip-hop. Native artists such as electric guitar pioneer Link Wray, whose instrumental hit “Rumble” was banned from radio, and Jimi Hendrix, who was part Cherokee, forever changed the trajectory of rock and roll.

The prize-winning documentary Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World celebrates their influence, drawing perspective from a succession of stars – Robbie Robertson, Quincy Jones, Jackson Brown, Iggy Pop, Slash, Steven Tyler, and others – who knew them, played with them, and were inspired by them.

Join Kansas City PBS and The Bridge 90.9 for a screening and conversation with local indigenous artists at the Plaza Branch of the Kansas City Public Library on Thursday, January 10th. All Native band, The Red and Blues, will perform during a reception beginning at 6 p.m.
