Sousa on the Rez: Marching to the Beat of a Different Drum is a short documentary that sheds light on the little-known Native American marching band scene. When you hear the phrase “Native American music” you may not think of tubas, trumpets and Sousa marches. Yet this rich musical tradition has been a part of Native American culture for over one hundred years. Combining profiles of contemporary bands with fresh historical research, this documentary challenges viewers to expand their definition of Native American music and broadens their understanding of contemporary Indian life.
