UMASS alum and Native and Indigenous Studies scholar Danika Medak-Saltzman will visit Mount Holyoke and Amherst College next week.

On Wednesday, April 11 at 3pm in Frost Library, Danika Medak-Saltzman will host an informal Showcase of Indigenous Women’s Digital Media, including the virtual reality documentary, Highway of Tears.

CBC's first virtual reality documentary, Highway of Tears transports viewers to 16 year old Ramona Wilson's home and then onto the notorious stretch of Highway 16, providing a visceral experience of the landscape and the personal tragedies that haunt that landscape and that have affected so many Indigenous people in Canada. The documentary was directed by Anishinaabe filmmaker Lisa Jackson.
