Native POP Film Showcase

  • SDPB Black Hills Studios 415 Main Street Rapid City, SD 57701 (map)

Native POP, Vision Maker Media, and South Dakota Public Broadcasting are partnering again to present the annual Native Film Showcase during the Native POP: People of the Plains event.

Films will run from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., at the South Dakota Public Broadcasting (SDPB) Black Hills Studio, 415 Main Street, Rapid City, SD. It will include documentaries of regional interest, as well as an opportunity for local filmmakers to show music videos, short films, and works in progress. Native POP takes place on Main Street Square, 526 Main Street, and the SDPB Black Hills Studio is a block away.

The Black Hills premiere of RETURN: Native American Women Reclaim Foodways for Health and Spirit at 5 p.m. will feature a discussion with Kibbe McGaa Conti, a nutritionist at Rapid City Indian Health Service, who is featured in the film. The documentary is about empowering people to overcome their current circumstances through eating as their ancestors did — nutritiously and locally. RETURN explores the food-sovereignty movement occurring across the country through the stories of women championing the return to traditional food sources.
