Abstract:

Columbus Didn't Discover Us The 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus's historic voyage to America also marked 500 years of survival by indigenous people throughout the Americas, whose way of life was fundamentally changed by the European landing. In preparation for the Columbus Quincentennial, 300 Native men and women came to the highlands of Ecuador to take part in the First Continental Conference of Indigenous Peoples. Columbus Didn't Discover Us features interviews with participants, filmed at this historic gathering, representing a wide spectrum of Indian nations from North, South, and Central America. This documentary is a moving testimony about the impact of the Columbus legacy on the lives of indigenous peoples from across the hemisphere. Native people speak about the devastation of their cultures resulting from the "European Invasion," contemporary struggles over land and human rights, the importance of reviving spiritual traditions, and the need to alert the world to the environmental crises threatening the survival of the planet. Columbus Didn't Discover Us is an essential primer for understanding the Columbus legacy - past and present - from an indigenous point of view. "The naked truth of the Columbus legacy is revealed. A must for the classroom. [Columbus Didn't Discover Us]"--Stephanie Betancourt (Seneca), Native American Education Program, New York City Public Schools "A visually and spiritually moving presentation. Through song, dance, and testimony, representatives from many Indian nations share their views on the events set into motion by Columbus. Columbus Didn't Discover Us is a celebration of our survival and exploration of paths we must travel to ensure the survival of the Earth and its indigenous people for the next 500 years. An excellent educational film for churches, activists, artists, educators, and people of all ages." - Jan Elliott (Cherokee), editor of Indigenous Thought "This video allows the viewer to hear Indians speaking for themselves with passion and conviction. Columbus Didn't Discover Us is an important and valuable testimonial from voices too long suppressed." - Lisa Mitten (Mohawk), secretary, American Indian Library Association Film Festivals, Screenings, Awards Award of Merit, Latin American Studies Association (Columbus Didn't Discover Us) San Antonio Cine Festival (Columbus Didn't Discover Us) Chicago Latino Film Festival (Columbus Didn't Discover Us) Vermont International Film Festival (Columbus Didn't Discover Us) Illuminations Film Festival, Montreal (Columbus Didn't Discover Us).
