Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World

Sponsored by: Yale Film Study Center

Celebrate Native American Heritage Month with CPTV, the Yale Native American Cultural Center, and the Yale Film Study Center at an Indie Lens Pop-Up screening of RUMBLE: THE INDIANS WHO ROCKED THE WORLD. This new documentary by Catherine Bainbridge and Alfonso Maiorana will be followed by a discussion with Yale’s Kelly Fayard and Jay Gitlin.

RUMBLE brings to light a profound and missing chapter in the history of American music: the Indigenous influence. Featuring music icons Charley Patton, Mildred Bailey, Link Wray, Jimi Hendrix, Jesse Ed Davis, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Robbie Robertson, Randy Castillo, Taboo, and many more, RUMBLE shows how Native musicians helped shape the soundtracks of our lives.
