William King Museum sponsors Native American film series

December 30, 2019

William King Museum of Art, Abingdon, Virginia, has developed a film series to accompany its two Native American exhibits.

The film series kicks off with “Defending the Fire” Thursday, Jan. 16. The film focuses on Native American Warriors and the unique cultural and spiritual path they navigate, relying on the tenets of the Warrior in ancient and modern warfare.

The series continues Thursday, Jan. 23 with ”What Was Ours,” an award-winning documentary about the search for lost tribal artifacts.

The final film, “Blood Memory,” screens Thursday, Jan. 30 and highlights untold stories of the Indian Adoption Era, a time that saw nearly one-third of Native children taken from their tribal communities across the U.S.

All film screenings begin at 7 p.m. at the Southwest Virginia Higher Ed Center and are free for all to attend. Information on the films can be found at www.WilliamKingMuseum.org.
