Dodging Bullets—Stories from Survivors of Historical Trauma – 98 minutes

Director: Sarah Edstrom, Kathey Broere, Jonathan Thunder, Bob Trench

Native Americans have dodged bullets since first contact with Europeans. This film brings a cross-generational sampling of Indigenous people, researchers, and politicians to reveal stunning reasons for their disproportionately high incidences of health and social issues. This collection of remarkable stories, names Historical Trauma as the unique and insidious part of the genetic code that resilient Native American populations are still finding ways to dodge.

The film focuses on Native Americans and is not the typical “tragedy porn” film about Indian Country, it is more of an accurate portrayal of life.

The MSPIFF (Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival) selected Dodging Bullets—Stories from Survivors of Historical Trauma as the winner of “Minnesota Made Documentary Feature Competition” and has named it as one of the “Best of Fest” films.
