Flying With Red Haircrow Productions

"Revitalization and Resurgence"

Preview New #Documentary Film Project “ALMOST” on the Impact of #Stereotypes of Heritage, Gender & Abilities

A new film project we’re working on, from the award winning director of a feature length documentary on Native reality and appropriation in Germany, “Forget Winnetou! Loving in the Wrong Way”. forgetwinnetou.com/.

The concept of “ALMOST”, of being judged “not enough” based on your heritage, gender, sexuality or cognitive/physical abilities. Due to the racist, toxic structures in society, such behaviors especially target and impact people of color. If you would like to be a part and share your experiences, you’re welcome to contact us.


ALMOST

Directed, produced and edited by Red Haircrow redhaircrow.com/
Animations by Neda Ahmadi vimeo.com/nedframe
Music by Johnny Clyde

Description:

“ALMOST normal.
ALMOST acceptable.
ALMOST indigenous.

Half, a quarter, a fraction, a piece.
Gender, sexuality, ethnicity,
cognitive or physical abilities.

Toxic beliefs, ableist and racist structures
in society continue to harm.
Some are embracing their differences
in order to heal, and they are connected.”

#BookReview “Spirits of Blood, Spirits of Breath” by Barbara Alice Mann (Seneca) in NAIS Vol.5.1 2018, University of Minnesota

Check out many other authors, books & Red Haircrow’s review of “Spirits of Blood, Spirits of Breath: The Twinned Cosmos of #Indigenous America” by Barbara Alice Mann (Seneca) in NAIS: Native American and Indigenous Studies’s latest journal, Vol.5.1 2018, at the University of Minnesota. Copies available here https://www.upress.umn.edu/journal-division/journals/nais

An excerpt from the two-page review: “Spirits of Blood, Spirits of Breath” is a collection of different and sometimes distinct indigenous perceptions, stories, legends and, while some people might call them myths, as in fiction, these are histories and explanations orally passed down that are believed true or are rooted in truth. As the aphorism states, “The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.”  Yet this book is more than a systematic gathering of related information primarily on serpents and thunderbirds or sky and earth beings, none unique or forbidden because it is all available if you know where to look, and far more than a work detailing then condemning European proclivities, past or present.  It is correction by example, of misattribution, mislabeling, and at times a “blow-by-blow” timeline of western interference and biased disdain for actual native wisdom and realities, while conversely other Europeans appropriated and erased.”
