Hear Native leaders tell their own stories, in their own words

For too long, Native peoples' stories and futures were written by others. But today, Native leaders and Native youth are ready to write their own path forward. Led by director Ryan RedCorn, the stories from these rising Native leaders hold lessons for us all—about our relationship with our work, with our land, and with each other.

Insights from the Interviews

"The goal is to keep building, and keep collaborating. Building family, building community—and also bringing other Indians into the fold as best as I can. Because it's our time! Finally!"

Bobby Wilson, Actor, Screenwriter, & Comedian

"I feel like it's a privilege for me to have grown up with the perspective of what I want to preserve—what I love, and what I value, and what matters to me."

Artist

"Our stories are always a reminder to take care of each other. This is what we're told and taught. That kind of wrap-around communal love that we have for one another? That's what they should take from us. Take that from us."

Chief, Shawnee Tribe
