First Voices

Next Steps

The success of the first series of digital films has increased both Native and non-Native interest to further this project and build it into a series of ancestral and student-interpreted stories. Between Sept. 2022 - Sept. 2024 Thresh plans to raise awareness, dissemination plans, and build plans to create 5 new stories and in parallel, mentorship programs from the following reservations:

  • Fort Peck, Crow, Fort Belknap, Blackfeet, Salish-Kootenai

  • Expand national partners to help build a stronger dialogue and exchange for the program and schools

  •  Build Tribal College partnerships to include First Voices in their curriculum

  • Enter film festivals, museum screenings and exchanges between educational institutions by sharing the stories and having in person and virtual discussions and dialogue

  • Build atleast 2 relationships with tribes outside Montana to expand the project to become more national
