It’s been almost nine months in the making, and like a birth after a nine-month wait, we are ready to release the American Indian College Fund documentary video into the world। It was a joyful, expectant, and sometimes difficult nine months। We had to convince several students to share their stories of struggle with us and the rest of the world, as well as the camera. It’s hard enough struggling to get an education against sometimes great odds, harder still to have the courage to share your struggles with others. The students featured in this short film have opened themselves to audiences to share their hopes, dreams, sorrows, disappointments–and their desire to continue their educations despite the odds. Our community leaders have also weighed in about the important role our tribal colleges serve, not just for the student, but for entire communities. I hope you will watch the video and continue to support the hopes and dreams of our deserving American Indian students.
