Event Details

Discover how Native American musicians transformed American blues, jazz and rock in the musical celebration.

An electrifying look at the Native American influence in popular music – despite attempts to ban, censor and erase Indian culture. The film reveals how early pioneers of the blues and jazz had Native American roots, and as the folk-rock era took hold in the 60’s and 70’s, Native Americans such as Peter La Farge and Buffy Sainte-Marie helped to define its evolution, while Native guitarists and drunner such as Link Wray, Jimi Hendrix, Jesse Ed Davis, and many more forever changed the trajectory of rock and roll. Their stories are told by some of America’s greatest music legends who knew them, played music with them, and were inspired by them, including Robbie Robertson, George Clinton, Taj Mahal, Slash, Jackson Browne, Taboo, Buddy Guy, Quincy Jones, Derek Trucks, Tony Bennett, Iggy Pop, Steven Tyler and Stevie Van Zandt.

Includes a post-show discussion after the screening with Layla Locklear and Charly Lowry, of the acapella singing group Urali (featured in the film).
This event is the first in our Free Documentary Series with RiverRun through the PBS Indie Lens Pop-Up Series, to be followed on February 21st with Olympic Pride, American Prejudice, and on March 21st withThe Providers.
