Ian Munsick’s ‘White Buffalo: Voices of the West’ Documentary Premieres to Intimate Crowd in Las Vegas
Ian Munsick premiered his new documentary, White Buffalo: Voices of the West, in Las Vegas on Wednesday (Dec. 6) to an intimate crowd of 150 attendees.
The film spanned nearly an hour and expanded on the concept of Munsick’s sophomore album White Buffalo, with the white buffalo representing a sacred symbol for the plains tribes of Native America, its return signaling prosperity and rebirth. The documentary will be available to the public in early 2024.
Following the premiere, the cast was joined by Cam Mackey, Director/Cinematographer from the Tohono O’Odham Nation and Executive Producer Caroline Munsick, for a panel discussion moderated by film and television actor and enrolled member of the Lakota Nations, Mo Brings Plenty. The conversation highlighted the importance of sharing Native and Western experiences from those who live them in order to shed an authentic light on the culture.
