NOVEMBER 14 & 15

The Smithsonian’s Museum of the American Indian doesn’t have a home yet, so it’s borrowing the Hirshhorn for “Native Visions,” a program of five films by American Indian filmmakers. Tonight, Sandra Sunrising Osawa presents Going Back, a music video about returning to the reservation, and Pepper’s Pow Wow, a study of Kaw/Creek jazz musician Jim Pepper. Nov. 15’s program features two Chris Eyre films about tragedy and reconciliation, Tenacity and Someone Kept Saying Pow Wow (pictured), and Dean Curtis Bear Claw’s Warrior Chiefs in a New Age, a film about the strategy of Crow leaders during the early days of the reservation period a century ago. Discussions will follow both sets of screenings, which are part of the Smithsonian’s American Indian Heritage Month activities. At 8 p.m. at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden’s Ring Auditorium, 8th & Independence Ave. SW. FREE. (202) 357-2700. (Mark Jenkins)
