Free Screening of Native American Films June 25
Join Janna Jones, NAU Communication Professor, and Jonathan Pringle, Curator of Visual Materials at Cline Library, for a free screening of Native American films on June 25.
The main feature is “Racing the Rez,” a documentary focused on five teens living on the Navajo and Hopi reservations. The film unfolds over two years of careful observation, and offers a rare view into the complexity and diversity of contemporary reservation life. “Navajo Homelife” and “Navajo Rug Weaving,” short films made by Tad Nichols in 1939-1940, will also be screened.
The event will be held June 25 at 7 p.m. in the Gathering Room at NAU’s Native American Cultural Center, which is located across the street from Cline Library. Free parking is available after 4:30 in lot P13 behind the library. The films are presented by Cline Library, the School of Communication, and the Native American Cultural Center. Refreshments will be provided.

PowWow Exhibit Continues in Special Collections and Archives
An continuing exhibit featuring the "Flagstaff All-Indian Pow-Wow" is on display at the Cline Library through July. Flagstaff's annual Native American powwow drew hundreds of thousands of participants and spectators to town between 1929 and 1979. The collection offers a glimpse into the powwow's history, including the mix of tribes represented, the business of organizing and promoting the event, social aspects, personal histories of dancers, cowboys, artists, and tourists, and the economic impact the event had on the community. You can view the free exhibit in the Special Collections and Archives section on the second floor of Cline Library through July, or take a look at the virtual version online
