The event will include a preview screening of the documentary followed by a question and answer session with producers.

Explore the complicated ways the culture and traditions of Native Americans have affected their participation in the United States military when you see The Warrior Tradition at this FREE screening at WNED | WBFO studios. The one-hour documentary, co-produced by WNED-TV Buffalo Toronto and Florentine Films/Hott Productions, Inc., tells the stories of Native American warriors from their own points of view – stories of service and pain, of courage and fear. (The film airs nationwide Nov. 11 at 9 pm ET on PBS.)

The screening event starts with a brief reception in Horizons Gallery with artwork by Carson Waterman, a Seneca artist and Vietnam veteran. At 5:30, a formal program in Studio 1 will include screening the entire film as well as a short digital film by Seneca filmmaker Caleb Abrams commissioned by WNED and featuring Waterman. The event will conclude with a panel discussion with the film's producers, a veteran from the film, and Abrams.

The Warrior Tradition has been made possible by a major grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting: A private corporation funded by the American People. With additional funding by The Arthur Vining Davis Foundations, Independent Health and Arizona Humanities.

The Warrior Tradition is a co-production of WNED-TV Buffalo Toronto and Florentine Films/Hott Productions, Inc. It was produced and directed by Lawrence Hott and written by Ken Chowder. John Grant is executive producer for WNED-TV.
