For all the gains made by minority voices in front of and behind the camera, one group often remains misrepresented when it comes to the big screen: Native Americans.


The First Nations Film and Video Festival, coming to DePaul University’s Naperville campus Thursday, aims to change that, at least for one evening. The program includes a short film, “Shi Shi Etko,” and a documentary, “Reel Injun,” both of which are made by Native American filmmakers and focus on native topics.
