The University of Minnesota American Indian Cultural House will be hosting a film series March 24 and April 21 to help raise public awareness and celebrate the works of American Indian and First Nation films that challenge racial stereotypes.

The first film in the series, "Redskins, Tricksters and Puppy Stew" will be shown at 7 p.m., Wednesday, March 24. Directed by Drew Hayden Tayler, this documentary looks at the complex issues of Native identity, politics and racism through the eyes of comedic performers

The second film "Qallunaat: Why White People are Funny," will be shown at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 21. This docucomedy is a collaboration between filmmaker Mark Sandiford and Inuit writer and satirist Zebedee Nungak about what it must feel like to be the object of the white man's gaze.

Both films are at the Bell Auditorium and are free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
