Movies@MNH: "Lost Nation: The Ioway 2 & 3"


Sunday, October 19, 2014 - 10:00am


Macbride Hall Audutorium

 The unforgettable story of the Ioway people continues where the award-winning Lost Nation: The Ioway left off in two one-hour documentary films.  When the Ioway are forcibly removed from their ancestral homelands to a reservation in Kansas, Ioway leader White Cloud (The Younger), believes his people must relocate to survive.  But intermarriage, broken treaties, and the end of communal living leads to a split in 1878 and the establishment of a second Iowa Tribe in Indian Territory (Oklahoma).  Both tribes endure hardship and challenges to their traditions and culture to achieve successful land claims and self-determination in the turbulent 1970s.  Lost Nation: The Ioway 2 & 3 brings the Iowa story full circle.

[LENGTH: Ioway 2-55 minutes, Ioway 3-55 minutes; No Rating]
