Canes of Power Film Screening
with Dr. Matthew Martinez

Museum of Indian Arts and Culture

The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture announces a screening of Canes of Power. Following the film, a Q&A will be led by Dr. Matthew Martinez, the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture’s deputy director, and associate producer of the film.

Canes of Power, narrated by Cherokee Actor Wes Studi – a recent Academy Award recipient – is the story of President Abraham Lincoln’s gift of engraved wood canes gifted to each of New Mexico’s 19 Pueblo nations. The canes symbolized the recognition of tribal sovereignty at the very same time 13 Southern states were seeking their own sovereignty (in the form of succession) from the United States.
