The third installment of the Briscoe’s third annual Native Film Series, which will feature the 2017 documentary Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World, is a must-attend for those interested in the cultural legacy of Native America and/or American music history.

The documentary takes a close look at the general impact of Native Americans on popular music while zooming in on particular Native players like Link Wray, Buffy Sainte-Marie and others. Using clips and contributions from an impressive cast of artists, musical and otherwise, the film highlights an often undersung group that nevertheless has made countless foundational contributions to contemporary America. Interviewees for this special documentary include Buddy Guy, George Clinton, Steven Tyler, Iggy Pop, Tony Bennett and many more. Series curator Dr. Dustin Tahmahkera will lead a discussion following the screening.



Free, Tue April 17, 6:30pm, The Briscoe Western Art Museum, 210 W. Market St., (210) 299-4499, briscoemuseum.org.
