1. Mimbres Fever Productions proudly announces the release of their documentary exploring the power and beauty of Columbia River Native American culture.

    Faithful To Continuance weaves together exquisite artifacts with interviews from six exceptional Plateau artists and one Treaty Fisherman. Through their eyes, we learn the ways of their ancestors and see the workings of a unique culture.

    Elizabeth Woody, Poet:
    "The sound of water tells the story well, in the sheen of river stone, a song is prevalent, faithful to continuance, the purity is a nuance, the memory, this certain way." Elizabeth reads from "Luminaries Of The Humble" and "Seven Hands, Seven Hearts", two books of poetry and verse on Plateau culture.

    Lillian Pitt, Sculptor:
    Lillian brings to life the spirit of her Ancestors. Motivated by rock art images along the Columbia River, she produces large scale metal sculpture as well as fine jewelry that reflects the 10,000 year tradition and beauty of her People. "Seeing the image of "She Who Watches" was a very profound moment for me because it let me know exactly who I am and it gave me a sense of power no one can remove from me."

    Elaine Timentwa Emerson, Basket Weaver:
    Elaine is a well-respected artist and teacher of cedar bark basket weaving. "When I was growing up, we were not allowed to speak our language, we were punished. I think that's what made me do the baskets. Also, I make baskets because I want people to know....we're still here."

    Faithful To Continuance is the fourth video in a series on Native American Culture, produced and distributed by Mimbres Fever Productions.

  4. Plateau beadwork is among the most unique and beautiful ever created. It carries the history and hope of the people who survived introduced diseases, a government policy of extermination, loss of traditional homelands, and forced acculturation.

    The beadwork tradition is very much alive today in the Plateau. Beadwork is among a family's most treasured possessions. Worn during celebrations and given as gifts to commemorate important occasions, it's believed to carry the spirit of the Grandmother who made it. Contemporary artists are maintaining and developing the tradition, creating exquisite new work.

We are independent video documentary makers and have produced five documentaries on Native American art and culture. We are currently in production on our sixth video, Spirit In Glass: Plateau Native Beadwork.

Our goals are: To show the beauty and power of Native American art and culture; to explore the historic roots and sources of inspiration of Native art; to pay tribute to the Grandparents, who maintained and evolved their traditions despite tremendous obstacles; and to show the work and traditions of contemporary Native artists.

We are grateful to the artists who have shared their work and vision with us.
