Advanced Media Training:

To correct the deficit of Native American representation in world media, it’s not enough simply to possess tools of production; it’s also necessary to know how to use these tools for storytelling – whether narrative or documentary. The operation of media production tools – like carpentry tools – can be learned on a basic level in a matter of months. However, creating high end quality content requires far more extensive training and practice. Native American cultures have a rich tradition of apprenticeship and mastery of a wide range of arts and crafts. The IMV shall carry this tradition forward into advanced media production, by bringing together promising artist, storytellers and students from all Nations, with talented and experienced media professionals of both native and non-native ancestry.

Intertribal Media Village

The Intertribal Media Village will be both an extremely advanced production and post-production facility, as well as a very special, peaceful place for talented artists, technicians and business people to gather and work together, in an environment of focused concentration, inspiration, and spirituality. The IMV will employ the latest all-digital media technologies to develop a broad range of content – primarily on Environmental and Native American themes – ranging from low-budget, high-quality ethnographic and cultural preservation projects – to higher-budget narrative and documentary features, intended for distribution in the consumer market.

Looking towards the future

“If Native Americans are to enjoy the nuanced, complex characterizations and cultural depictions enjoyed for decades by White America – and more recently by Black America – then Native Americans must invest in their own sophisticated media production tools – and ultimately their own distribution systems as well.”
