We Come from the Stars
Missy Whiteman (Northern Arapaho and Kickapoo), explores and connects Dakota, Ojibwe, and Arapaho creation stories, significant sacred sites, and star constellations in this documentary that reflects on where we’ve been to see where we are going. Her story weaves together interviews with elders and wisdom keepers, poetry, music, and star maps to explore these origin stories that are rooted in Minnesotan land.
