Opata songs on National PBS Documentary

We recently found out via our Noragua Rushingwind (Opata-Cahuilla), that 2 songs of his solo album “Keeper of Secrets” (Google play Music) that won a NAMMY Award will appear 4 times on the Documentary “The Warrior Tradition” which will air November 11, 2019, on National PBS. There will be a premiere at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC in October 2019.

The Warrior Tradition tells the astonishing, heartbreaking, inspiring, and largely-untold story of Native Americans in the United States military. Why do they do it? Why would Indian men and women put their lives on the line for the very government that took their homelands? The film chronicles the accounts of Native American warriors from their own points of view – stories of service and pain, of courage and fear.

The Warrior Tradition, a one-hour documentary, is a co-production of WNED-TV, Buffalo/Toronto and Florentine Films/Hott Productions, Inc. Produced and directed by Lawrence Hott, written by Ken Chowder, Edited by Rikk Desgres. Cinematography by David Litz, Sound by Mark Henry. John Grant is an executive producer for WNED.
