RECLAIMING Their VOICE: The Native American Vote in New Mexico

A poignant look at past injustices, set against an inspiring vision for the future...

"Reclaiming their Voice"
documents ways in which Native Americans have been disenfranchised over centuries, and are now becoming politically active. A little known fact: Native Americans living on reservations were the last ethnic minority to have been granted the right to vote in the United States.

In this film, we meet Native Americans who are stepping forward, and speaking out against injustice. We learn how they are reclaiming their voice through education and action. The film follows two stories in New Mexico: the Laguna tribe's groundbreaking voter registration drive in 2004 and the Sacred Alliance for Grassroots Equality's (SAGE's) work to preserve sacred petroglyphs.
