Tribal Pride is an engaging hopeful documentary about the Tribal Youth Ambassador Program. In four short minutes, the film introduces the audience to the background of the program, the youth participants and the work that they do. Interviews with the young people and their mentors are skillfully woven with footage from the traditional crafts and the museum that this program supports. Tribal Pride acknowledges the historical trauma of the Native American people, and at the same time focuses on resilience of the people and hope for the future. It captures the passion of the young people for their traditions and respect for the elders, inviting the casual observer to learn more about the culture. This film is strong technically, an example of excellence in the craft of documentary filmmaking. I give this 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 10 to 18.
Native American youth have important roles in preserving their culture, the land, and water. Through the Tribal Youth Ambassador program, they share their story of uplifting their community through creating apps, making videos, educating others, and more. This story is not centered around tragedy, but around empowerment and resilience.
