Urban Indians is a documentary web series presenting a glimpse into the lives of Indigenous men and women residing in urban environments. Through interviews and footage following each subject's day to day life the audience will be presented with what it means to be a modern day Indigenous person living in a major city, primarily New York City. The subjects of the project represent a fraction of the diverse tribes found throughout North America. Our goal is challenge many of the stereotypes Native Americans face in society. Most people still see Native Americans as the stoic buckskin-wearing cliches represented in media when in fact they are men and women living lives as diverse as the rest of America.
Created, directed and produced by Robert Cangiano, Amalia Córdova & Genesis Tuyuc.
