Film actors attend movie premier
Janurary 15, 2016

AFTER THE SHOW: Mauricimo Sanchez-Hohenstein (16) and his sister S’Nya (12) were greeted by movie-goers December 12 following the Bismarck premier of the film “The Jingle Dress” at the North Dakota Heritage Center. The two played central roles in the film about an Anishinaabe family that moves from a Minnesota reservation to the big city. It was the first film-acting opportunity for the two, who had lived in Minneapolis and are Hunkpapa Lakota. They are the great-grandchildren of UTTC’s Carl Hohenstein, a genial elder who has served the college for over 38 years. United Tribes helped sponsor the premier that was coordinated by Cheryl Kary of the Sacred Pipe Resource Center, http://sacredpipe.net/, and also attended by the film’s Producer/Director William Eigen.
