The 6th Annual Native Spirit Festival 2012

  • October 12, 2012 · 10:00 PM

The Native Spirit Annual Festival is a season of films, performances and workshops celebrating the cultures of Indigenous peoples across the Earth.
The Native Spirit Festival was founded and is counselled by Indigenous people. It is a UK registered charity, run by volunteers and acts as a platform to promote the voices of Indigenous cultures and the protection of their rights. Native Spirit Festival is a non-commercial, non-competitive festival.
For more than 500 years Indigenous people have suffered the consequences of European invasion. The monopolisation of the mass media has perpetuated a false image of their culture. The festival intends to give back a voice to them, to recount history from their perspective and to share their diverse cultures and wisdom. As severely under-represented people in the global film and media industries, the festival is seen as a much-needed platform to celebrate and explore Indigenous cultures in a multicultural and diverse city such as London.
The Festival helps generate dialogue and peaceful encounters between the Indigenous world and modern Western society. It offers the European public an opportunity to share views with some of the world’s oldest surviving and most marginalised peoples on the planet. These often over-looked communities are rooted in ancient traditions, cultures and languages, yet are more commonly characterised today by displacement, conflict and exploitation.


12-19 October at SOAS, Russell Square, London WC1H 0XG

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
