Video | To Feel the Earth

This trailer for the upcoming documentary "To Feel the Earth: Moccasins in the Southwest" is a co-production of the Indian Arts Research Center at the School for Advanced Research and Red Ant Films. The documentary is a part of a traveling exhibit that highlights moccasins in Pueblo, Navajo, and Apache cultures and also addresses the importance of wearing moccasins. Herb Stevens, Will Tsosie, and Pat Tenorio are featured in the film, along with moccasins made by Gary Roybal, John Garcia, and Edwin Herrera. Former Harvey J. Branigar Jr. intern Jessica Metcalfe is also featured, due to her expertise in Native fashion. Click here to read more.

  1. It was a moving experience to visit the Pueblo Cultural Center during my visit to Albuquerque this past winter. "To Feel the Earth" was one of the highlights of my Center visit. As I watched the video I was so excited to see the commentary from Dr. Metcalfe, a Turtle Mountain Chippewa. I am a Bottineau, ND, native, so it felt like a voice "from home." I was so surprised to see someone from my home area that I had to watch the video a second time. Well done, Jessica Metcalfe!

    My 96 yr old mother still lives in Bottineau and sends me articles from the Courant she thinks I will enjoy. I was delighted to read the feature on Beyond Buckskin and Dr. Metcalfe in the May 23 edition, which is what prompted me to write this comment.
