Indian Times: Richard Ray Whitman (Euchee/Pawnee) In Three Films At Sundance Film Festival (Jan 04, 2009)
This week on Indian Times, we will speak with Native American activist, artist & now film actor, Richard Ray Whitman. Whitman is from the Pawnee and Euchee tribes and makes his home in Oklahoma City. He?s going to Sundance Film Festival for the first time this year because he is in three films that will be showing at the festival. In the course of the interview, two of the filmmakers he?s worked with on these films, Sterlin Harjo and Julianna Brannum came up, so we re-visit some of their interviews from last year. Sterlin Harjo is from the Seminole and Creek Nations. He has come the closest to enjoying the cross-over success that Smoke Signals found 10 years ago with his film ?Four Sheets To The Wind.? Whitman is in Harjo?s latest film ?Barking Water?, which will debut at Sundance later this month. Julianna Brannum is from the Comanche Nation, she recently won a Tribeca Media Arts Fellowship and is a documentary filmmaker. Whitman will be in a segment she produced on Wounded Knee 1973 for the upcoming PBS documentary ?We Shall Remain? which will begin airing in April.
