Just Films is a collaboration of four organizations in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania committed to women, girls, gender equity, and social justice: the Chatham University Women’s Institute, New Voices Pittsburgh, the Women and Girls Foundation, and the Women’s Law Project. We have chosen ten documentaries for this film series covering a wide range of issues – from immigration to human trafficking, trans families, paid leave, and more – designed to educate, inspire, challenge, and move you to action. Many of these films were made by women, and most will be showing in Pittsburgh for the first time. This is the story of Native American women in New Mexico, from the creation stories of the beginning of time, through the invasions from Spain, Mexico, and United States. The power remains and the story continues. “At the center of all is Woman, and nothing is sacred without her blessing, her thinking.” —Paula Gunn Allen, The Sacred Hoop From the proverb, “It takes a thousand voices to tell a single story,” this is a documentary that builds from thousands of voices to present one universal story of New Mexico’s Native American women. Native American women have been purveyors of culture since creation. In spite of Western invasions, Native American women remain strong and grounded in traditional values by enduring courage and wisdom. The voices and advisers are from the Navajo Nation, Mescalero Apache Tribe, Jicarilla Apache Tribe, Kiowa Tribe, Pueblo de Cochiti, Ohkay Owingeh, and Pueblos of Acoma, Laguna, Jemez, Santo Domingo, Pojoaque, Santa Clara, Taos, Nambe and San Ildefonso.
