Film festival to explore depiction of Natives

Penn State Fayette is hosting a film festival this fall that explores depictions and misrepresentations of Native Americans.

Four films will be screened during the "Celluloid Indians: Native Americans and Film" festival. First up is "Black Robe," a movie about the attempted conversion of a Huron tribe in Quebec.

"The Searchers," starring John Wayne; "Incident at Oglala," the story of Leonard Peltier's arrest and imprisonment and "Smoke Signals" will also be shown.

The festival coincides with the school's semester-long focus on Native issues.
