Rumble: Native Americans in Rock and Roll and the Classroom
Fri Nov 17 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm
The recent award winning film Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World tells the story of a profound, essential, and, until now, missing chapter in the history of American popular music: the Indigenous influence. The panel will discuss the Native American impact on Rock and Country music, as well as the educational materials designed by the Rock and Roll Forever Foundation's TeachRock project that allow K-12 teachers to use content from Rumble to introduce issues of indigenous people to their classrooms.
