Vision Maker Media Launches Environment- Themed Programs to Celebrate Anniversary
Vision Maker Media (VMM, visionmakermedia.org) is launching its first environment-themed program as part of its 45th Anniversary and in acknowledgement of International Earth Day via an online film-streaming event. “commUNITY: Environment is Sacred” is a curation of five films, featuring themes of water, energy, Indigenous food, and health. These themes highlight important environmental issues that have a direct effect on Native lands and an Indigenous philosophy for the world to better understand. The films will be available for worldwide streaming 24/7 at visionmakermedia.org throughout April. This event is free and open to the public, though registration is required at visionmakermedia.org.
VMM also is presenting two online events about environmental issues, including a social media challenge asking everyone to contribute to the environment by doing a trash pick-up challenge around their local community. Vision Maker Media will also present a moderated panel in collaboration with Indigeneity, a Native-led program within Bioneers that promotes Indigenous approaches to solve the earth’s most pressing environmental and social issues. Bioneers is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote practical and innovative solutions to global environmental and bio-cultural challenges.
Vision Maker Media is a nonprofit established in 1976 with support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and Nebraska Educational Television (NET). Their mission is to empower and engage Native people to share their stories. Learn more at visionmakermedia.org or follow on Facebook and Instagram (@visionmakermedia).
