PBS Michiana – WNIT presents Pokagon Band of Potawatomi: A Song for Everything. The documentary explores how culture and language have survived through the pressures of colonialism, government oppression, and modern-day life. This is a story about how tribal expressionism and individualism of members combine with culture as a binding force of community. From re-recognition as a sovereign nation to reclaiming identity in contemporary America, culture and language play their part in defining what it means to be a Pokagon citizen and how that perseverance despite a myriad of struggles looks toward the future through are, music, language, knowledge-sharing and tradition.
