Directed by documentarian Billy Luther (Navajo-Hopi-Laguna), Miss Navajo explores Navajo culture through the story of Crystal Frazier and the Miss Navajo pageant, which centers around tradition and the perpetuation of Navajo culture and values--a reframing of the more typical pageant focus on the female form and beauty. Additionally, in partnership with the Student Academic Center the Mathers Museum will host the inaugural meeting of the New Things Club after the film screening. Dedicated to inspiring students and community members to try new things, this club will engage in activities on campus and field-trips off campus. The screening will be free and open to the public, and is sponsored by Themester 2016: Beauty, an initiative of the IU College of Arts and Sciences.
