7 films to watch on Indigenous visibility day



Today is Indigenous Visibility Day – a day not to paint the face and make a paper headdress, but to look at the peoples of the Americas with respect and think about how we can decolonize our thinking, in order to have more humanitarian attitudes towards indigenous peoples, not only today, but always.
