This five-part series spans 300 years to tell the story of pivotal moments in U.S. history from the Native American perspective. It begins in the 1600s with the Wampanoags, who used their alliance with the English to strengthen their position in Southern New England. And it ends with the bold new leaders of the 1970s, who harnessed the momentum of the Civil Rights Movement to forge a pan-Indian identity. WE SHALL REMAIN: AMERICAN EXPERIENCE challenges the two-dimensional stereotypes of American Indians as ferocious warriors or peaceable lovers of the land. This ground-breaking mini-series represents an unprecedented collaboration between Native and non-Native filmmakers (from Chris Eyre to Ric Burns) and involved Native advisors and scholars at all levels of the project. Benjamin Bratt narrates.
