PCC Forum & DWI Host Online Event - Indigenous Storytelling in Film as a new form of Subtle Activism

Updated: Jun 13

This online forum hosted with the PCC Forum explored different ways in which indigenous communities and artists are working to together to represent indigenous cosmologies and storytelling through the medium of film. The forum explored how film can be used to advocate the rights, preservation and regeneration of indigenous lifeways on ancestral lands.


The event featured artist and curator Paige Bardolph, who is the Director of the Global Museum at San Francisco State University, where she also teaches graduate courses in Museum Studies. Paige recently worked with graduate students to curate an exhibition on the impacts of climate change on indigenous communities. She was formally an Associate Curator at the Autry Museum of the American West and lead curator of the California Continued exhibit. She has also held positions at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County and the California Academy of Sciences. She has served as consulting producer and co-producer for multiple KCET projects, including “Tending Nature,” “Tending the Wild,” and “The Art of Basketry” episode on “Artbound.”



The Deep Water Initiative is inspired by the ecological importance of water as an all-pervasive element that sustains life on this planet.  The metaphysical importance of water as both a cleanser and regenerator has been upheld by many cultures throughout the world, and is celebrated within the creation myths of different religious and spiritual traditions.  The Deep Water Initiative has been particularly influenced by the significance of water as demonstrated within the Five Books of Moses.
