Staff Report. “Museum debuts movie about Lumbee teachers.” The Robesonian (Lumberton, NC). September 5, 2015
A documentary about educators from the Lumbee Tribe entitled “Telling Our Stories: Recollections of Lumbee Indian Teachers” will be shown at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke on September 24, 2015.
The film is directed by Stan Knick, who was inspired to make the 28-minute film based on an oral history project he did in 2014. It features eight retired teachers who tell stories that Knick said will provide windows into local culture attitudes and values.
Knick previously directed and produced “Knowledge, Wisdom and the Traditional Mind: the Nottoway in the 21st Century,” which was named Best Regional Film at the 17th annual Native American Film Festival of the Southeast. “Telling Our Stories” will debut at 7 p.m. at the Museum of the Southeast American Indian and is free to the public.
