OFFICIAL SELECTION
2014 SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL


Director Sterlin Harjo heard a story hundreds of times growing up; the story of when his grandfather disappeared. Pete Harjo mysteriously went missing in 1962 after his car crashed on a rural bridge in Sasakwa, Oklahoma. The Seminole Indian community began a day and night search for his body. As they combed the riverbanks it is told that they sang songs of faith and hope that had been passed on for generations. The same Muskoke (Creek) hymns that once rang out during the government removal of Native Americans known as the Trail of Tears, continue to echo from the people during times of worship, joy, mourning, hope, tragedy. This May Be the Last Time illuminates the history of these powerful songs, in a fascinating study in of ethnomusicology that traces all the way back to the Scottish Highlands from their continued significance to the Muscogee (Creek) and Seminole people today.
Screening Sponsored by: Gun Lake Casino
