Join us for the worldwide Livestream premiere of the award winning short film, "Strong Hearts: An Indigenous Love Letter To My Sons", the directorial debut of famed Indigenous actor Gary “Litefoot” Davis” (SPIRIT RANGERS, THE INDIAN IN THE CUPBOARD, SONG OF HIAWATHA, HOUSE OF CARDS), and produced by @indigistudios .

Strong Hearts has been selected to screen at several 2022 festivals, including Edmonton International, San Diego International, Santa Monica International, Portland, Berlin Short, ARFF Amsterdam, Manhattan and many others.

STRONG HEARTS was also honored with the “Award of Excellence” award from the Impact Docs Awards and the silver “Remi” award from the 55th Annual Worldfest-Houston International Film Festival.

STRONG HEARTS, a film inspired by the words of the Lakota chief, Crazy Horse, expresses an Indigenous father’s wisdom and guidance for his three young sons.

STRONG HEARTS is a visual love letter delivered with raw vulnerable narration. The film conveys a message of strength, beauty, and power from a father to his young sons, imploring them to live a life of purpose. The boys are reminded of their ancestors struggles, to fight for their purpose, cherish their cultural teachings and to not let anyone define them.

Davis, a member of the Cherokee Nation & a passionate advocate for Indigenous people, approaches the story from the heart, crafting a powerful and emotional message.

Davis co-founded IndigiStudios with his wife @icarmendavis , a well-known indigenous business leader and organizer of the “Reach the Rez” project, which still stands as the single largest national outreach effort aimed at positively impacting hundreds of Tribal nations across Indian Country.

Boys night out at the movies to see #WakandaForever .

And in summary watched @blackpanther fight blue 😱, water dwelling 😶, #Avatar inspired 🫣, #Mayan speaking bad guys 😐 to save Wakanda from being destroyed by the war hungry 😑, wings on ankles 🤫, #Indigenous god Kukulkan (whom the Aztecs called Quetzalcoatl). 😳🫠🤦🏽

I have waited my whole entire life to see some indigenous folks, or even just one indigenous person, in a super hero movie and when I finally do… they are blue, live under water and wanna destroy the world. Oh, for pete’s sake - c’mon! We just can’t catch a break.

Man! I don’t have the time or energy at this moment to get into unpacking all the emotions I went through while watching this 3 hour film.

But let me unpack just a few of them real quick. 😁🤣😂

Well, it is very apparent that we as #Indigenous people have a VERY long way to go in regards to OWNING CONTROL of the way “creatives” and “artists” from outside of our #tribal communities feel so empowered and completely within their rights to perpetuate to the world who Indigenous people are in film (which BTW will be digested by millions of people around the world) without the least bit of concern as to the subsequent damage their fiction causes our very real and ongoing struggles to reclaim the centuries old false narratives surrounding our history and #Native cultures.

It blows my MF’n mind. Because not even a little bit of that “creative license” would be tolerated by other folks if it was the other way around and the hero was, “Red Panther”. Ummm, which makes me wonder doesn’t Marvel feel that #NativeRepresentationMatters ? Guess not.

But, the popcorn was friggin awesome. 🍿

I saw a post on the @uslacrosse IG talking about how they walk by the #CreatorsGame statue each day in front of their building and think about “those” that “gave” them the game of #lacrosse (their is a lot to unpack and reclaim in just that one statement). They said the sport is nothing without its roots. Which is great - but we are still here. Our people are the roots of the game and we STILL play and are involved at the highest level. We are the roots. And we are also the branches and leaves on that tree. We are still here.

They went on to say, during #NativeAmericanHeritageMonth , and every month, they honor the originators of the game. Well, that is a great PC statement. But it falls flat.

I follow lacrosse pretty close, and respectfully, I don’t see that honor on a consistent basis. As a matter of fact, I don’t really see it much at all. If it weren’t for #Indigenous players and communities keeping us represented there would be no meaningful representation from the contemporary lacrosse world.

Those same people who created the game, are not recognized or even invited to play the game on the world level without another country having to cede their spot so the “Creators” and “originators” of the game have a chance to play the game they originated.

Talk is cheap. Do more. Do better. And seek out those #indigenousathletes that are not on the lacrosse radar the same way you do for other communities of color.

And didn’t @lyle4thompson miss a game and still lead the entire @pll in scoring last season. Yes, he did.

We are still here and there is so much we have to offer to the game today besides being a historical footnote that is cool to acknowledge sparingly though the year which barely checks the #diversity and #inclusion box. #dobetter #representationmatters #mutuality #dehontsigwaehs #indigenouspeople #indigenousrepresentation

Normal Sports weekend for our family 🏈🥍. You can find me in the stands, on the field coaching or cheering on our boys pretty much every weekend.

And every once in awhile I end up sitting next to a really hot Makah, Chippewa, Cree and Yakama mom who seems really excited to take a picture with me. Must be my cologne. 🤣🥳😋

‘Strong Hearts’ is inspired by the words of the Lakota chief, Crazy Horse and is filled with a father’s wisdom and indigenous world view, poetically expressed as a letter to his three sons. Through its raw vulnerable narration and evocative music, a message of strength, beauty and power is conveyed to these indigenous young men, imploring them to live a life of purpose. ⁠

Filmed on location at battlefields where Crazy Horse fought, historical happenings become the perfect classroom for teaching lessons of gratitude, resolve, humility and love.⁠

Join us for the worldwide digital premiere of the award winning short film, "Strong Hearts: An Indigenous Love Letter To My Sons", the directorial debut of famed Indigenous actor Gary “Litefoot” Davis” (SPIRIT RANGERS, THE INDIAN IN THE CUPBOARD, SONG OF HIAWATHA, HOUSE OF CARDS), and produced by IndigiStudios.

Strong Hearts has been selected to screen at several 2022 festivals, including Edmonton International, San Diego International, Santa Monica International, Portland, Berlin Short, ARFF Amsterdam, Manhattan and many others.

STRONG HEARTS was also honored with the “Award of Excellence” award from the Impact Docs Awards and the silver “Remi” award from the 55th Annual Worldfest-Houston International Film Festival, founded in 1968 and held annually in Houston, Texas.

Produced by IndigiStudios, Davis’ new Indigenous-owned and operated production company, STRONG HEARTS, a film inspired by the words of the Lakota chief, Crazy Horse, expresses an Indigenous father’s wisdom and guidance for his three young sons. Davis co-founded IndigiStudios with his wife @icarmendavis , a well-known indigenous business leader and organizer of the “Reach the Rez” project, which still stands as the single largest national outreach effort aimed at positively impacting hundreds of Tribal nations across Indian Country.

STRONG HEARTS is a visual love letter delivered with raw vulnerable narration. The film conveys a message of strength, beauty, and power from a father to his young sons, imploring them to live a life of purpose. The boys are reminded of their ancestors struggles, to fight for their purpose, cherish their cultural teachings and to not let anyone define them. Filmed on location at battlefields where Crazy Horse fought, historical happenings become the perfect classroom for teaching lessons of gratitude, resolve, humility and love.

Davis, a member of the Cherokee Nation & a passionate advocate for Indigenous people, approaches the story from the heart, crafting a powerful and emotional message.
