PBS American Experience: We Shall Remain

April 14, 2009

Five 90- minute documentaries spanning three hundred years tell the story of pivotal moments in U.S. history from the Native American perspective.

“We were about to be obliterated culturally. Our spiritual way of life, our entire way of life was about to be stamped out. Every tribe in this country has a time of horror when they were confronted by the invader.”

PBS American Experience presents WE SHALL REMAIN, a groundbreaking mini-series and provocative multi-media project that establishes Native history as an essential part of American history. WE SHALL REMAIN premieres April 13, 2009 on PBS. Check local listings.

    I’ve been enthralled with the “We Shall Remain” series. I’ll be watching the chapter on Geranimo next week. It’s terrific. I’m ashamed of what we Americans did, but more than that, how most of us never knew the real story of what happened. This should be mentioned in our Congress, and made a part of all of our students’ history lessons. Also, it’s perfectly done. What an undertaking, and what a sorrowful story. My heart goes out to those long-lost people and to their descendants.
