Seven of New Mexico’s Pueblo Governors and as well as other tribal leaders joined SBP’s production team, Wes and Maura Studi, Senator Tom Udall and Jill Cooper Udall, as well as Washington members of agencies, foundations, educators and filmmakers, for a celebration of the message from Silver Bullet’s new film “Canes of Power.” A reception on the 4th floor of the beautiful National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) was sponsored by Global Center for Cultural Entrepreneurship, The Dan and Ashlyn Perry Charitable Foundation, and Silver Bullet Productions.
