Program on Native American Ioway Tribe to be featured at Pioneer Day

MAQUOKETA—Emmy-nominated filmmakers Kelly and Tammy Rundle will relate the dramatic story of “Lost Nation: The Ioway 1, 2 & 3” at Pioneer Day on Oct. 6.

The state of Iowa is named for the Native American Ioway, who were forcibly moved from their Iowa homeland in 1837 to a reservation on the border of Nebraska and northeast Kansas.

The Rundles, who live in Moline, Ill., will speak at 1 p.m. Oct. 6 in the Jackson County History Museum at the fairgrounds. They will outline the history of the Ioway tribe, display Ioway artifacts and items related to the films, and show excerpts from their documentary series.

“Lost Nation: The Ioway”, the first in the three-part documentary series, was completed in 2007. It was released nationally on DVD in 2008 and was broadcast on PBS stations throughout the Midwest in late 2010.

The “Lost Nation: The Ioway 2 & 3” sequels will be released this month on a single full-featured DVD. The sequels tell of intermarriage, broken treaties and the end of communal living, which led to a split among the Ioway in 1878; a second Ioway tribe was established in Oklahoma, and the Rundles are honorary members of that tribe.

Both tribes endured hardship and challenges to their traditions and culture. The sequels note that it took the Ioway tribes until the 1970s to achieve successful land claims and self-determination.

The Rundles also created “Country School: One Room – One Nation”, winner of an Emmy nomination in 2012, and “Villisca: Living with a Mystery.” “Movie Star: The Secret Lives of Jean Seberg” is in post-production, while they are currently working on “Hero Street” and “River to River: Iowa’s Forgotten Highway 6.”

DVD copies of many of their documentaries will be available for sale in the museum.

Jack Willey, president of the Jackson County Historical Society Governing Board, noted that this year’s Pioneer Day has fun and educational events for children on the schedule—games, crafts, petting zoo, and hands-on demonstrations.

  • With $41.4M, 'Captain America' holds off 'Rio 2'

    "Captain America" continued to flex its Marvel muscle at the global box office, as "The Winter Soldier" took in $41.4 million domestically and $60.6 million overseas.

    The strong second-week performance for the Walt Disney release in North America was enough to narrowly edge 20th Century Fox's "Rio 2" in a springtime battle of sequels. The animated Amazon jungle tale "Rio 2" debuted with $39 million, according to studio estimates Sunday, almost exactly the opening weekend total of the 2011 Oscar-nominated original.

  • Stepping forward: The real Colbert

    Letterman changed the late-night TV game between his run on NBC's "Late Night" and starting the "Late Show" franchise in 1993. And while it's tough to replace a pop-culture icon, Colbert, in terms of pedigree and sense of humor, makes the most sense.
