Uncolonized is a short documentary film about a native family who decided never to enroll their two daughters in the public school system, choosing instead to homeschool them from birth. Chris is Potawatomi and Chasity is Navajo. Their daughters Nathaney and Mimicah, ages 11 and 7 at the time of filming, carry both of their parents' lineages in their blood, but also in their way of being.

The film takes a critical look at the historical experiences of native children inside of the US public education system and brings clarity to the decisions of the family to keep their daughters out of the public school system, and therefore keeping them UNCOLONIZED.

This is a short clip from the larger film “Uncolonized”. This clip in particular shares some history on so called “Boarding Schools” for native children in the USA. These "schools" exercised the official U.S. government policy of "Kill the Indian, Save the Man" attempting to Americanize native children by brute force.

If you don’t know anything about these boarding schools, this is a good place to start. If you do know about them, we hope this can help as a teaching tool.
