Native American Documentary
Being Thunder is a beautiful Native American documentary that deals with difficult issues in a respectful and supportive way.
We get to follow along as Two Spirit Sherente participates in dance competitions at powwows in the Eastern United States.
They already have family and local support, but experience challenges with others.
The documentary is a touching portrait of Sherente, their family and Native culture.
Release Date January 10, 2023
Sherenté, a Two Spirit Genderqueer teenager from Rhode Island’s Narragansett tribe performs in dance competitions at annual regional powwows of New England tribes.
There is no formal rule which prohibits Two Spirit Genderqueer people from competing in a category different from their birth gender.
Wearing female fancy shawl regalia, Sherenté dances with joy and beauty.
Behind the scenes, tribal leaders manipulate Sherenté’s scores or disqualify them outright because of their belief in traditional binary gender roles.
Blindsided by ongoing dishonesty and deception, Sherenté continues to perform in spite of insensitive behavior by tribal leaders and others in their community.
Sherenté’s enduring courage and self-respect are met with an outpouring of support from family, powwow attendees, and fellow competitors.
