    Native Film Series – Double Feature

    The Briscoe Western Art Museum’s 3rd Annual Native Film Series showcases a selection of thought-provoking documentaries that feature original and diverse indigenous stories. All were directed, written, produced by, and/or star Native Americans. 


    Navajo Talking Picture (1986/40 min./NR): Filmmaker Arlene Bowman documents her grandmother’s traditional lifestyle on the Reservation in spite of her forceful objections to her invasion of privacy, raising issues of “insider/outsider” status.


    Miss Navajo (2007/58 min./NR): Following a young woman and her quest for the Miss Navajo Nation crown, this film explores the role of women and tradition in Diné (Navajo) culture.


    Dr. Dustin Tahmahkera (Comanche Nation), Assistant Professor at the University of Texas at Austin, curated the series and will lead a discussion after the screening.
