A Reckoning in Representation with Paulina Alexis
In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, the Center for Native American Youth (CNAY) at the Aspen Institute is pleased to announce a live discussion with Paulina Alexis (Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation) Paulina’s most recent film, BEANS, is the critically acclaimed coming-of-age story that had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Based on true events, Tracey Deer’s award-winning debut feature chronicles the 79-day standoff between two Mohawk communities and government forces in 1990 Quebec. We are proud to be living in a moment with accurate representation of Indigenous people in the media and invite you to celebrate with us. To commemorate the release of this powerful film, CNAY will be hosting a virtual Zoom discussion with Paulina Alexis on Thursday, November 11, 2021, from 7:00-8:00pm EST. This conversation will also include Native youth leaders who work to increase representation of Indigenous voices in main-stream media.
