“The New Indians” - “A Visit with Erik” film series. Amid the destruction and despair of his people more than a century ago, the great Oglala Sioux holy man, Black Elk, had a vision. The fifth generation, he prophesied, would bring back the strength and the pride of the Indian people. When Erik Daarstad photographed this film in the mid-’70s, it was the era of that generation. It tells the stories of a young Navajo attorney, a young rock musician and artist, a tribal chief and a young education counselor who are trying to revive their ancient heritage and help their people look forward to a more rewarding future. Shows at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Panida Theater, Little Theater, 300 N. First Ave., Sandpoint. $6/adults, $5/seniors and students. (208) 263-9191.
