Racing the Rez
In the rugged canyon lands of Northern Arizona, Navajo and Hopi
cross-country runners from two rival high schools put it all on the line
for Tribal pride, triumph over adversity and state championship glory.
Win or lose, what they learn in the course of their seasons will have a
dramatic effect on the rest of their lives....A co-production of Wolf Hill Films and NAPT, Racing the Rez moves
beyond Native American stereotypes of the past and present by delving
deep into the daily grind of these Native teenagers. Over the course of
two racing seasons, you'll witness the boys striving to find their place
among their Native people and the American culture surrounding them. The film sheds light on the many challenges that these runners face
living on a Reservation and how they come to terms with having to make
cultural choices that most American youth will never encounter (from: http://visionmaker.semkhor.com/product.asp?s=visionmaker&pf_id=RREZ-11-H&dept_id=23445).

- The Student Teachers Anti-Racism Society (STARS) promotes anti-racism education at the College of Education, University of Saskatchewan through the support of the College. We work collaboratively to understand, identify, and address individual and systemic racism and its interlocking forms of oppression based on gender, sexuality, ability, class, religion and other socially constructed categories. We believe that anti-racist and decolonizing education, when woven together, can create humanizing and emancipatory change for everyone.
