Join Longhouse Media in welcoming the Seattle Premiere of “Barking Water”, with the filmmaker Sterlin Harjo in attendance on April 16th & 17th. And a continued run will be until April 22nd at Northwest Film Forum in Seattle.
Native American filmmaker Sterlin Harjo traces the impromptu journey taken by weathered, handsome couple Frankie and Irene as they visit the stations of their fractured relationship. Though their history has been frequently interrupted, they mean everything to one another, and this wise second feature affectionately travels Oklahoma’s roads, stopping now and then to reveal itself as one of American cinema’s most moving love stories-adult and unsentimental-to have appeared in a long time.
Official Selection of the 2009 Sundance Film Festival; Winner of the Worldfest Bronze Remi Award for Creative Excellence.
“Barking Water is the kind of independent film that touches the heart with its quiet rhythms and quirky characters.” -Spiritually & Practice

Longhouse Media and National Geographic All Roads Film Project, partnered with Northwest Film Forum presented 2501 Migrants: A Journey. It was an amazing documentary! For those that missed the event, you can see the trailer here, enjoy!
To the communities they leave behind, migrants leave hollow footprints of cultural and domestic abandonment in their departure for a brighter future. This documentary is about the response of artist, Alejandro Santiago, to the impact of migration within his own Oaxacan community in rural Mexico. He is struck by what he perceives as a virtual “ghost town” and the reality that Oazaca has emerged as one of Mexico’s leading “exporters of human labor” to the United States.
On Sunday, March 28th Daybreak Star was a bustle of energy. As part of this month long tribute to the 40th Anniversary of the creation of Daybreak Star and the United Indians of All Tribes Foundation because of the Bernie Whitebear-lead takeover of Fort Lawton, Red Eagle Soaring Native Youth Theater performed a musical re-enactment, Resurrection City.
RES youth worked hard with teaching artists Storme Webber, Hannah Franklin, Star Nayea, Victor Pascual, and Andrew Morrison to create a worthy tribute to the people, events and spirit of 1970; the tribute was beautiful and worthy. Their hard work and talents inspired us all. Good Job RES!!!
The Seattle Native Circle team would like to give a shout out to the Seattle Indian Health Board participants in their Biggest Loser contest! The contest is inspiring many Natives to keep to their New Year’s resolutions, is raising money for Spirit Walk, and for every pound lost, a pound of food is donated to Food Life Line! The TV producers of The Biggest Loser were also thrilled with the SIHB contest, and if you are a fan of the show, you will be seeing our SIHB Natives on TV in the coming season! Congrats and thank you for all of your hard work!!! You are inspiring!
