Two Indigenous storytellers, Amanda Cheromiah (Pueblo of Laguna) and Alejandro Higuera (Pascua Yaqui) share one narrative: the endurance and longevity of Indigenous runners. Featuring two films, A Scholar’s Pace: A Running Narrative of Indigenous Feat is a documentary that captures the narratives of Indigenous People who use running as an important means to navigate their professional, personal and educational journey and beyond. The second film, Resiliency Through Running is a short documentary about the Pascua Yaqui Tribe Flag Run. The purpose of the run is to celebrate the resiliency, culture, and 40th year of federal recognition for the Pascua Yaqui people. The documentary follows individuals running from their ancestral homelands In Vicam Pueblo, Sonora Mexico to the Yaqui reservation in Southern Arizona. (Approximate event run time: two hours)
