"For the Generations" airing in Ohio
Native American performers infuse contemporary genres of dance and music with traditional elements from their Tribal heritage. Through artist interviews and performances, six profiles document the effort to bring this "Native Fusion" genre to mainstream performing arts.
Artists profiled in the documentary include pop-diva, "Urban Indian," Jana Mashonee; classically trained ballet dancers Michael Greyeyes and Santee Smith; Grammy winners Robert Mirabal and Bill Miller; funky R&B songstress Martha Redbone; Painted Sky's own Northstar dancers and a host of others.
Part performance, part behind-the-scenes footage and interviews, the documentary profiles the personal stories of the artists in their own words--weaving a narrative through the performances that lends gift and personality to the beautiful artistry showcased.
