Po’pay, A True American Hero


The Pueblo Revolt, which began on 10 August 1680 under the leadership of Po’pay, was the most successful example of American Indian resistance to colonialism in North America, liberating the Pueblo people from Spanish colonizers for over a decade.  Po’pay, A True American Hero, produced by the Pueblo of Ohkay Owingeh and Skalalitude Productions and directed by Derek Stokes, Catherine Angeles, and Herman Agoyo, is a promotional short for a feature-length documentary film about Po’pay to be released in January 2008.  For more information about the Po’pay Project, go to <www.myspace.com/inthespiritofpopay>.
