    My Louisiana Love This program journeys with filmmaker Monique Verdin on a quest to connect with her ancestral roots within the Houma Nation, a Native American community reeling from decades of environmental degradation and natural disasters.
    The Houma, one of the largest Native American tribes in North America, live in South Louisiana communities where decaying marshlands serve as the only buffer against storm-surge floodwaters. Verdin sees her people's traditional way of life - and the land they live on - threatened by a cycle of man-made environmental crises. After witnessing the devastation caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005, and the BP oil spill in 2010, Verdin finds herself turning to environmental activism, and documenting her family's struggle to stay close to the land despite the cycle of disasters and the rapidly disappearing coastline.
    This film looks at the complex and uneven relationship between the oil and gas industry and the indigenous people of the Mississippi Delta. In this intimate portrait, Verdin must overcome the loss of her house, her father and her partner - and redefine the meaning of "home."

    The Road to Andersonville: Michigan Native American Sharpshooters in the Civil W "The Road to Andersonville" is the first film to document the story of Michigan's Native Americans in the Civil War who served in Company K of the 1st Michigan Sharpshooters. During the Civil War, a regiment of sharpshooters was being recruited to fight for the Union, but there was a problem - few men could pass the marksmanship test. Since Michigan's Native Americans were famous as skilled hunters, it was decided to recruit one company -Company K- from among the tribes in Michigan. Nearly 140 men volunteered for Company K in the 1st Michigan Sharpshooters regiment. Company K was sent to Virginia in 1864, and fought in some of the fiercest battles of the Civil War: The Wilderness, Spotsylvania and the Siege of Petersburg. duration 59:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    America's Secret War While the United States was publicly engaged in the Vietnam War, a secret conflict was raging just next door in the country of Laos. Under the command of the CIA, a full-blown military operation engulfed Laos, with a select few of the U.S. Armed Forces participating. At Long Tieng, a secret airbase in the heart of Laos, the CIA trained an army of allied guerilla fighters including a large number of the Hmong people (an ethnic group from the mountainous regions of southern China, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand), to assist in destroying enemy supply lines. The hour-long documentary AMERICA'S SECRET WAR uncovers the history of this covert war through the stories of Hmong elders and a rich collection of never-been-seen archival images, maps, and documents, including recently declassified CIA intelligence. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Forgotten War: The Struggle for North America 250 years ago, three powers clashed in an epic struggle for North America. Often overshadowed by the American Revolution, the French and Indian War (1755-1760) determined which great European empire would control the Ohio River Valley, the gateway to the West, and the crucial highway of rivers and lakes connecting New York and Montreal. This documentary recounts the little-known story of how the Indian nations of the Northeast controlled the outcome of this war. An international panel of experts dig beneath the familiar history and shed new light on this long-ago conflict. The program follows the fates of the Abenaki and Iroquois people, separates fact from the myth of Robert Rogers and his legendary Rangers and chronicles the "massacre" at Fort William Henry, the battles of Fort Ticonderoga and Crown Point, the tragic expulsion of the Acadians and the fall of Quebec and Montreal. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 8:00 pm
    Sand Creek Massacre What led approximately 600-plus volunteer soldiers to attack a peaceful settlement of Cheyenne and Arapaho Indians in the Southeastern Colorado Territory? On November 29, 1864, Colonel John Chivington led an unprovoked attack that resulted in the deaths of more than 150 women, children and the elderly.
    This documentary revisits the horrific acts of that day and uncovers the history 150 years later. It gives insight into the history and describes in detail the actions and the events - the discovery of gold in the west, the push for Colorado statehood by Governor John Evans, and the belief in manifest destiny - that led to this infamous massacre.
    The film provides an in-depth look at the story's real-life villains and heroes through moving oral histories shared by 22 Sand Creek descendants, an interview with David. F. Halass, PhD, a Northern Cheyenne Consultant and Colorado Chief Historian and archival photos and letters.
