PBS to broadcast 'We Shall Remain' in April
"We Shall Remain," a mini-series told from the Native perspective, premieres on PBS in April.

The series includes five films. They follow the story of the Wampanoags of New England following the arrival of Europeans on the Mayflower, the life of Shawnee Chief Tecumseh, the forced removal of Cherokees on the Trail of Tears, the resistance of Apache warrior Geronimo and the 1973 occupation at Wounded Knee.

"I still think the portrayal of Indians in the mass media is in the Stone Age," filmmaker Chris Eyre, who directed two of the films, told The Boston Globe. "Hopefully what's changing here is that we're starting to portray ourselves as three-dimensional characters. We don't want to be nobles and we don't want to be savages."
