Fort Washakie High School students’ film Missing Murdered Indigenous Women premiered at the 13th Annual LA Skins Fest in late November. The film explores the importance of protecting Native American women. In the film, students speak with activists and discuss measures that combat the MMIW epidemic.
The film won the Achievement in Student Filmmaking award at the 8th Annual Native American Media Awards during the festival.
According to the Fort Washakie High School Facebook page, the students were also invited to present the film at the National Indian Impacted Schools Association Annual Conference in Las Vegas in December.
County 10 hopes to chat more with the students when they are back from holiday break. In the meantime, congratulations!
