Documentaries are an easy way to learn more about everything, including history. There are several we recommend.

PBS’ NATIVE AMERICA premiered in 2018 and is a 4-part series that goes back and features America’s first peoples and their connections to the world today.

Ken Burns’ The West features information about the settlers who drove Native Americans out of their cherished lands. It gives context for why things happened.

Sitting Bull: A Stone In My Heart is a unique window into the heart of one of Native America’s greatest chiefs. It is told in his own words from letters throughout his life. You can find this documentary on Amazon Prime Video.

The list goes on and on to learn about Native American culture. One venue not too far from NoHo Senior Arts Colony is The Autry Museum of The American West. It has a meaningful collection of Native American culture and history to experience. At NoHo Senior Arts Colony, we believe the more we learn about history in all of its facets, the more we can connect to each other as human beings.
