(7 mins. 26 sec.), HD. This short documentary observes the sights and sounds of Native culture alive and well in the Midwest. Positioned from a Kiowa perspective, the filmmaker's gaze exists within the liminal space of an insider to the culture and outsider to the exhibition. Furthermore, the camera documents the non-Indian audiences' insatiable appetite to voyeuristically record Indian performers, creating questions of exploitation and objectification of the indigenous subject.

Features amazing music from the Meskwaki Drum Group
