Indigenous Studies Film Initiative: Interactive Film Map

DER’s Indigenous collection of over 200 films spans many communities around the globe. The Indigenous culture groups listed in the film index reflect communities documented in DER’s collection and are not a comprehensive list of all Indigenous communities around the world. Our representation on mapping locations of Indigenous peoples depicted in our films are approximations and not to be considered authoritative.  This is due to the fact that part of the fabric of many Indigenous cultures is the relationship to their ancestral homeland which has been severely altered by a continual colonial presence.
