Nov 18-27, 2020 American Indian Museum Native Cinema Showcase
In the Hamptons, one of the wealthiest zip codes in the U.S., hedge funders sell home compounds for millions of dollars. However, before the rise of lavish homes, golf courses, and exclusive parties, lies the history of the area’s original inhabitants—the Shinnecock Indian Nation. Without powerful advocates, the tribe has been edged off their land due to decades of rampant development, sparking a battle to define land as either a commodity or a birthright. Rebecca Hill-Genia, a Shinnecock activist, along with other tribal members and allies, makes it her mission to protect the land and fight for the tribe’s community, heritage, and home.
Begins at 5 pm MST, available on demand until 7 p.m. EST, November 23
