Most of the participants are Native Americans, creating Native-themed films out on location on an Indian reservation.
Seattle filmmaker Tracy Rector and her Longhouse Media company launched the workshop 8 years ago.
"Growing up in Seattle as a mixed race woman who’s indigenous, I was very aware that there were not representations of people like me. And I often felt very isolated," she said.
The all-expenses paid workshop, held in partnership with the Seattle International Film Festival, brings together a multi-cultural group of youths. And in an effort to demystify Indian Country, the workshops are held on a different Indian reservation each year.
