The Warrior Tradition Documentary

November 10, 2023 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm EST

In honor of veterans day and Native American Month Tybee MLK Human Rights organization presents the Warrior Tradition documentary about Native Americans who serve(d) in the American military.The Warrior Tradition tells the astonishing, heartbreaking, inspiring, and largely-untold story of Native Americans in the United States military. The film chronicles the accounts of Native American Warriors from their own points of view-stories of service and pain, of courage and fear. the old duality of the Noble Savage/Helpless victim has dominated our cultural portrait of Native americans for more that fifty years and motives-patriotism, pride, rage, courage, practicality, and spirituality all mingle with an abiding respect for tribal, familial and national traditions. Even the numbers tell a story. During World War I, not all Native Americans were even citizens of the United States and couldn’t be drafted; yet more than 12,000 Indian men volunteered. Even in an unpopular war in Vietnam. 90 percent of the 42,000 Native people who served were volunteers. The roll call of Valor is endless. But there’s more to the story than heroism. and more than one way to be a warrior. Approx 60 minutes

A portion of the proceeds will go towards TybeeMLK Human Rights Organization.
