Get some popcorn, drinks and a comfortable seat and settle in to enjoy a Native American Double Feature! 

Feature #1 - Smoke Signals an independent film released in 1998, directed and co-produced by Chris Eyre and with a screenplay by Sherman Alexie, based on the short story "This is What it Means to Say Phoenix, Arizona" from his book The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven (1993).

10 Minute Intermission

Feature #2 - Silent Film The Daughter of Dawn released in 1920. It may be the only silent film ever made with an entirely Native American cast.[1]

Between its production and restoration in 2012, it was shown only a few times — once in Los Angeles in 1920, and in Kansas City, Tulsa and a handful of other cities. On December 18, 2013, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".[2][3][4

This film will also feature original organ accompaniment by Michael Britt.
