Unlocking Silent Histories: Lumbee Film Making

Fall Camp Opportunity

          Unlocking Silent Histories cultivates young leaders, preparing them to facilitate youth-led, youth-envisioned learning engagement designed to honor Indigenous knowledge and traditions by immediately including youth in defining what and how they learn, as well as what films they create. Burgeoning young filmmakers and local leaders, grades 10th -12th , gain the capacity to lead young people in exploring themes that they identify as important to their communities and our future, direct their own video investigations, and produce their own stories in the form of short films. This is achieved through a critical media literacy, technology, and leadership curriculum toolkit that develops youths’ analytical, technical, and leadership skills. Unlocking Silent Histories is funded by Project 3C.
