“A Thousand Voices” Free Screening, November 2016

A Thousand Voices

In Honor of Native American Month Silver Bullet Productions Presented “A Thousand Voices” at Las Campanas Clubhouse.

From the proverb, “It takes a thousand voices to tell a single story.” This is the inspiring story of the power of Native American women in New Mexico, from the beginning of time, through invasions from Spain, Mexico, and the United States, to the present day. The power remains, the story continues.

Voices and advisors from the Apache tribes, Navajo tribe, Kiowa Tribe, Pueblo de Cochiti, Ohkay Owingeh, and the Pueblos of Acoma, Laguna, Jemez, Santo Domingo, Pojoaque, Santa Clara, Taos, Nambe, and San Ildefonso.
