Film Screening: Redskin (1929)
In conjunction with the current exhibition Branding the American West: Paintings and Films 1900-1950, the MOA is screening the 1929 film, Redskin. This film delves into the events and issues surrounding the removal of Native American children from their families and placement into schools and colleges off the reservations and native lands in the early part of the 20th century. This film stars Richard Dix as Wing Foot, who returns to his tribe after attending college.
Join us for the screening in the MOA Auditorium on Thursday, April 7 at 7 PM.
