Alaska Native Film Series concludes Tuesday

Posted: November 22, 2012 - 1:05am

The last film in the Alaska Native Film Series will be shown Tuesday, Nov. 27 at UAS. The series, offered in recognition of Alaska Native and Native American Heritage Month, was organized by the Alaska Native Languages and Studies department, with help from the Native and Rural Student Center, Wooch.een and Waqaa student groups. Throughout November the films have been shown at 7 p.m. in the Egan Lecture Hall.

The featured film for Nov. 27 will be “History of the Iñupiat: Project Chariot.” This documentary by Iñupiaq filmmaker Rachel Naninaaq Edwardson tells the story of an Iñupiaq village that stopped the most powerful agency of its time: the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, who in 1958, planned to detonate thermonuclear bombs near North America’s oldest continually inhabited settlement.

The film is free and open to the public. A short discussion will follow the showing.
