Kelly and Tammy Rundle of Fourth Wall Films in Moline, Illinois have received a media grant from the Nebraska Humanities Council (NHC) via their fiscal sponsor Native American Languages of the Americas, for two new historical documentary film sequels entitled Lost Nation: The Ioway 2 & 3.
The two new documentaries will pick up the Ioway Native American story in 1837, where Lost Nation: The Ioway 1 left off, and they will be released on a single DVD in 2012. As with Ioway 1, the DVD will feature an alternative soundtrack in the endangered Ioway language.
Lost Nation: The Ioway 2 & 3 is one of many grants funded by the NHC. The NHC awards more than $200,000 in grants each year. Created in 1973 as a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the NHC is an independent, non-profit organization governed by a volunteer board of public and academic members. The NHC funds programs that explore Nebraska's heritage, build communty awareness, and strengthen our ties to cultural traditions at home and abroad.
