Urban Rez

A documentary exploring the lasting legacy and modern-day effects of the 1950s Relocation policies that encouraged American Indians to leave their homelands and relocate to urban areas across the country. Relocation legislation constituted the greatest upheaval of the Native American population during the 20th century. "Urban Rez" accurately portrays Indian self-determination and the experience of adapting to a different culture while maintaining their own tribal culture. Themes of empowerment, resiliency and adaption are interwoven with searing recollections of identity and racism. Moses Brings Plenty narrates this uplifting and insightful film, which includes dozens of tribal nations from multiple generations across the West.
