A Thousand Voices, is a documentary by Silver Bullet Productions, a nonprofit educational film company based in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The women in the movie talk about boarding schools, the reaffirmation of beauty, strength, and sustaining culture and languages of New Mexican tribes.

“Each woman tells a story deeply rooted to her culture… and the ‘thousand voices’ that precede her. This eye-opening film shatters stereotypes and features interviews with women from the Navajo Nation, Mescalero Apache Tribe, Jicarilla Apache Tribe, Kiowa Tribe, Pueblo de Cochiti, Ohkay Owingeh, and Pueblos of Acoma, Laguna, Jemez, Santo Domingo, Pojoaque, Santa Clara, Taos, Nambe, and San Ildefonso,” says a press release from Silver Bullet.
