In honor of Native American Heritage Month, PBS Distribution is releasing a new in-depth presentation focusing on Native American history and culture.

Native America is scheduled to be released Nov. 6 on DVD.  Narrated by Robbie Robertson (member of the famed rock group Mohawk, and a member of the Mohawk nation), the program delves into the contributions of Native Americas to modern America while also examining various Native American tribes’ past, present and future.  That includes Native American democratic structure as a model for America’s own three-tier government system, the Native American use of horses for transportation and combat, and their social and economic systems as models.

Native America was co-produced by Joseph C. Sousa, Scott Tiffany and Rob Tinworth.  It was co-directed by Sousa and Tiffany.  Gary Glassman served as the program’s Executive Producer for Providence Pictures.

Julianna Branum (of the Comanche tribe) was the program’s series producer and talent liaison.  Sean Sandefur and Rob Tinworth edited the documentary series while Ed Tomney handled the series’ music.  Coordinating producers were Maureen Barden Lynch and Ben Sweeney.

Native America‘s run time is listed at 216 minutes (3 hours, 36 minutes).  It will retail for MSRP of $29.99, but can be pre-ordered at a reduced price of $24.99 now via PBS’ online store.  A trailer for Native America is streaming online now here.
