Silver Bullet Productions invites you to the screening of:

Ancient Pathways - Modern Leaders

Voices of Pueblo Leadership


Men have responsibility, not power.
We will be known forever by the tracks we leave.

There is significance to the role of pueblo "heroes" in community life that is greater than self; leadership, an expression of pueblo values, is service to the greater community. In pueblos, spirituality and service are the basic qualities against which leaders are judged. Leaders are chosen for character, knowledge, and commitment to cultural survival. Individuals do not seek power or control, nor do they demand fame or authority. Leaders are not self selected, but nourished, encouraged and chosen based on the commitment and skills needed by a community at a given time. (American Indian
Research and Policy Institute, 1999).

This documentary fillm - ANCIENT PATHWAYS - MODERN LEADERS - is a profound and stimulating glimpse into this model of leadership that has sustained a culture for more than a thousand years.

We thank our screening and film sponsors: San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, IAIA (Institute of American Indian Arts), WA&A (Western Art & Architecture Magazine), La Fonda on the Plaza, and GCCE (Global Center for Cultural Entrepreneurship).
