Posted by Alexia Pierre on October 9, 2018 in News

The Tunica-Biloxi Tribe of Louisiana will host an exclusive film screening of a new Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) documentary series,Native America.” This event is free and open to the public and will serve as an exclusive look at the series before it hits screens across the nation.

To tie the Tribe into the context of the series, Tunica members met with Louisiana Public Broadcasting to film a small segment on the Tunica-Biloxi Tribe’s rich history. This segment includes interviews with Tribal members and shots of the Cultural and Education Resources Center (CERC) Museum. This segment will air in conjunction with the series.

“Native America” is a four-part PBS series that reveals some of the most advanced cultures in human history and the Native American people who created them. It also outlines the legacies that Native American ancestors have left that remain unbroken to this day and the unique systems of science, art and writing that they created.

The screening will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 17 at 6 p.m.

Multipurpose Room at the Cultural and Education Resources Center (CERC)
