The award-winning documentary Lost Nation: The Ioway is scheduled for an encore screening on Tuesday, October 18, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at Iowa Lakeside Laboratory in Milford, Iowa. The July 19, 2011 showing was filled to capacity and reservations by phone are required for the encore event.
Ioway Tribal Elders join historians to tell the epic story of the small tribe that once claimed the territory between the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, from Pipestone, Minnesota to St. Louis. What was a quest for survival in the past, has become a struggle to retain a unique Native American culture and language in the present.
The Rundles are currently in production on Lost Nation: The Ioway 2 & 3. The two new one-hour Native American documentaries will bring the Ioway story up to date, from 1838 to the 1970s, and include present-day material. The sequel project is slated for completion in the fall of 2012. Visit www.IowayMovie.com for more information.
Ioway was funded in part by Humanities Iowa, the Kansas Humanities Council, the Oklahoma Humanities Council, the Nebraska Humanities Council, and Silos and Smokestacks National Heritage Area.
Address: Lakeside Laboratory, Mahan Hall, 1838 Highway 86, Milford, Iowa.
