We're Still Here; Tomorrow's America

First Aired: September 24, 2003

Conclusion. Lakota Native Americans on South Dakota's Pine Ridge Reservation and native Hawaiians air their grievances. Then young filmmakers explore racial issues in three short documentaries. In the whimsical “Every Other,” a young woman who's half black and half Korean (Yong-Suk Jones) confronts the 2000 census. Which racial category should she choose for herself? “I'm something special,” she says, “like a new flavor of ice cream.” “Who I Became” follows 21-year-old Cambodian Pounloeu Chea as he struggles to make his way in San Francisco's Tenderloin. And in “I Belong to This,” Dustinn and Velma Craig wonder where they belong: on Arizona's White Mountain Reservation or in Phoenix, where they live.
