Naturally Native Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Connecticut's Mashantucket tribe financed this Native American drama about three sisters who enter the business world by selling Naturally Native, a homegrown line of cosmetics based on traditional tribal remedies. Married to a Native American, Vickie ([[Performer~P235630~Valerie Red-Horse~valerieredhorse]]) believes strongly in Indian traditions. She needs backers for her cosmetics line, and her two younger sisters, Tanya ([[Performer~P195161~Irene Bedard~irenebedard]] of [[Feature~V132258~Pocahontas~pocahontas]]) and accountant-in-training Karen ([[Performer~P235495~Kimberly Norris Guerrero~kimberlynorrisguerrero]]) join her enterprise, but when they team to manufacture and market Naturally Native cosmetics, they encounter racist, patronizing attitudes. Numerous Native American issues are raised in this film, shown at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
