Groundbreaking Honey Moccasin, an all-Native production written and directed by Canadian artist Shelley Niro (Six Nations Reserve, Bay of Quinte Mohawk, Turtle Clan), continues to resonate through multiple forms of and approaches to storytelling. According to Women Make Movies, “this irreverent reappropriation of familiar narrative strategies serves as a provocative spring-board for an investigation of authenticity, cultural identity, and the articulation of modern Native American experience in cinematic language and pop culture.” (Shelley Niro, 1998, 16mm to digital, 47 minutes) This online presentation is shared in honor of National Native American Heritage Month and in conjunction with the exhibition The New Woman Behind the Camera.
