Urban Rez -
URBAN REZ explores the controversial legacy and modern-day repercussions of the Urban Relocation Program (1952-1973), the greatest voluntary upheaval of Native Americans during the 20th century. During the documentary, dozens of American Indians representing tribal groups from across the West recall their first-hand experiences with relocation, including the early hardships, struggles with isolation, and racism. Interviewees also speak about the challenges of maintaining one's own tribal traditions - from language to hunting - while assimilating into the larger society. Actor, musician, and Oglala Lakota member Moses brings plenty of narrates of this insightful film about this seldom-told chapter in American history.
