The Salmon River Native Film Class is the third place winner of a national film competition: “Storytelling about Health and Wellness in American Indian and Alaska Native Communities,” sponsored by National Indian Health Tribal Health Research Office. Five students from SRC Native Film Class worked together to create this film to enter into the competition as a class project. Since many of the students were involved with Ohero:kon, they decided to focus on how the Ohero:kon passage rights ceremony brings health and wellness to our community. The students interviewed Tribal Chief Beverly Cook and Mohawk midwife and researcher Katsi Cook, as well two students from our class. One student was tasked with narrating the intro of the film, while all worked on filming and editing various segments of the five minute short film. View the winning films at the link below. Congratulations to our students!
