What’s unique about our documentary? To date, there is no other film or project like it in Germany that addresses the issue of stereotyping, and which includes a strong, wider perspective from Native Americans. We’ll present “healthier” more culturally respectful ways that decolonize minds and media, while giving Natives an opportunity to present themselves.

New Team Intro for Our Upcoming #Documentary “Forget Winnetou!”

Introducing new team member: Natasha John, designer and photographer!

Yá’át’ééh.

“My name is Natasha John, designer and photographer. I’m from the Navajo Nation, born for the Mexican Clan in Shiprock, New Mexico, but Arizona is home. Since youth, I’ve always been surrounded by design and art. My father was a construction worker and my mother studied art history. From this upbringing I was able to see both sides of the creative spectrum: the technical and the artistic. My father, often lacking a babysitter, would sneak me onto construction sites and my mother would share her art books with me. Ultimately, this lead me to where I am today. I now spend half my year in Berlin, Germany working as Freelance Designer and the other half with my family in Phoenix, AZ, re-embracing and re-learning my roots through photography.”

Welcome Natasha!
