Episode Description:

RECLAIMING Their VOICE: The Native American Vote in New Mexico & Beyond (42 min.)
Narrated by PETER COYOTE, this film is OSCAR-nominated, EMMY-winning, filmmaker Dorothy Fadiman’s latest documentary. "RECLAIMING Their VOICE" follows Native Americans in New Mexico taking a stand against injustice in the political process. Personal stories demonstrate how minority communities are using their voting rights as they participate more fully in elections. These stories capture a microcosm of growing awareness and activism which is taking root across the United States. In addition to documenting the Native American suffrage movement historically, the film follows a groundbreaking project led by the Laguna, NM Native community. Their efforts lead to significant positive changes in New Mexico state election law.
This story serves as a model for how other minority populations throughout the U.S. can work together to make sure they can cast their votes and that their votes will be counted.

This film documents:

* The Pueblo Revolt (1680)
* Wounded Knee (1890)
* The Sacred Alliance for Grassroots Equality's fight to protect
the sacred art of the Petroglyph National Monument
* The Pueblo of Laguna's 500 Voter Project
* The passage of legislation to ensure greater election security for Native Americans
* The UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People
