FILM & DISCUSSION: The Revenant (2015)

Please join the American Indian Studies Research Institute at Indiana University as we celebrate Native American Heritage Month with a very special showing of the semi-biographical Academy Award winning film, The Revenant, describing frontiersman Hugh Glass's experiences in 1823. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson, and Will Poulter; and it won academy awards for Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Cinematography. Learn more about how the Indian languages spoken by the actors in this film were an outgrowth of decades of linguistic and anthropological research by IU scholars. And join us for a very special conversation with IU graduate, Kuunux Teerit Kroupa, as he shares the impact that this film had among the Arikara people living today in Fort Berthold, North Dakota, and the current efforts and challenges with language revitalization efforts in Indian Country today.
