A story about a U.S. Army captain escorting a dying Cheyenne chief to his homeland opens in movie theaters nationwide this week. The movie “Hostiles”, stars Christian Bale, Rosamund Pike, and Wes Studi (Cherokee). The National Congress of American Indians praised the film for a “culturally accurate portrayal of Native peoples.” We’ll talk with Native consultants Chris Eyre (Cheyenne/Arapaho) and Dr. Joely Proudfit (Luiseño) who worked to make sure the film wasn’t another stereotype-filled disappointment.
Dr. Joely Proudfit (Luiseño) – co-president and co-founder of the Native Networkers
Chris Eyre (Cheyenne/Arapaho) – award winning director and producer of film and television and co-founder and co-president of the Native Networkers
