Every semester the Equity & Campus Diversity Office will post a list of documentary films we recommend which align with our monthly themes (see below). The purpose of posting this list is so viewers can go at their own pace and engage with diverse content which they might not have otherwise sought out. Your comments and feedback about the films are welcome as well as suggestions for future films. Happy viewing! If you would like to engage in a more interactive film experience please check out our Beyond Boundaries Dare to be Diverse film and discussion series.

We Shall Remain is a five-part television series that shows how Native people valiantly resisted expulsion from their lands and fought the extinction of their culture -- from the Wampanoags of New England in the 1600s, who used their alliance with the English to weaken rival tribes, to the bold new leaders of the 1970s, who harnessed the momentum of the Civil Rights Movement to forge a pan-Indian identity. We Shall Remain represents an unprecedented collaboration between Native and non-Native filmmakers and involves Native advisors and scholars at all levels of the project (source: facinghistory.org)
