For the fifth year in a row, the One Heart Native Arts and Film Festival brings together Indigenous filmmakers, musicians and other artists to celebrate the resilience and vitality of Native culture. This year focuses on the intertwined concepts of sovereignty, storytelling and spirituality, with each of the festival’s three events highlighting one theme. While the three-day festival kicked off last week with a Facebook Live acting workshop hosted by Lily Gladstone (Kainai, Amskapi Piikani, Nimii’puu), there’s still time to catch the next two. On Oct. 23, tune in to the annual short films program featuring original work by regional Native filmmakers. Afterward, connect with the creators during a livestreamed discussion. Closing out the festival Oct. 30 is a virtual concert featuring Tony Louie (Colville Confederated Tribes), Shanon Hale (Three Affiliated Tribes), Julia Keefe (Nez Perce), and Daisy Chain (Haida/Pacific Islander).
Fri, Oct. 23 and 30 at 7 pm • Free • Online; details at oneheartfestival.org and facebook.com/NativeFestOneHeart
