The Cotuit Library will screen “Rebel Music: Native America,” one episode of a six-part documentary film series that explores the lives of young people who are using their art and music to ignite social and political change around the world. This segment highlights Native American musicians who are using their art to inspire and transform their communities and the places they travel.
“Rebel Music: Native America” will be shown on Wednesday, November 15, at 3 PM.
The story depicts the lives of four characters: Frank Waln, a Lakota hip-hop artist who is fighting to save the environment; Inez Jasper, a Skowkale musician who is bringing awareness to missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada; and Nataanii Means and Mike Cliff (aka Witko), Oglala Sioux from Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, who are encouraging youth to find strength and inspiration through music amidst high suicide rates in their community.
This movie is part of the library’s Royston Nash Music Appreciation Series, supported in part by the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod, the Mid-Cape Cultural Council, and the Kirkman Trust.
