American Experience
We Shall Remain
Program Number

2105 - 2109

Series Description

Premiered October 1988 As television's longest-running, most-watched history series, American Experience brings to life the incredible characters and epic stories that helped form this nation. Now in its eighteenth season, the series has produced over 180 programs and garnered every major broadcast award. Series release date: 10/1988

Program Description

Broadcast Mondays April 13 to May 11, 2009

This mini-series establishes Native history as an essential part of American history, telling five stories that highlight Native ingenuity and resilience over the course of 300 years. Beginning in the 1600s with the Wampanoags, who used their alliance with the English to weaken rival tribes, and ending in the 1970s with the bold new leaders who harnessed the momentum of the civil rights movement to forge a pan-Indian identity, the series upends two-dimensional stereotypes of American Indians simply as ferocious warriors or peaceable lovers of the land.

Narrated by Benjamin Bratt with original music composed by John Kusiak.
