Naturally Native (1999)

UCLA Film & Television Archive, San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and Hollywood Foreign Press Association present “Through Indian Eyes: Native American Cinema.”


Naturally Native (1999)
Directed by Valerie Red-Horse (Cherokee) and Jennifer Wynne Farmer.
Director Valerie Red-Horse offers a moving tale of Native self-betterment and triumph in this disarming drama about three American Indian sisters, raised separately in foster families, who now seek a shared destiny as entrepreneurs of a line of organic cosmetics. The way to success, however, is strewn with practical, cultural and personal obstacles, the surmounting of which offers a drama rich with emotion, from a perspective heretofore rarely treated on screen.
