      1. Mongolian Group Etugen Invited to Israel
      2. Navajo Filmmaker Shonie de la Rosa
      3. Attracting Worlds: A Festival of Arts of the Indigenous Peoples of
      the North, Siberia, and Far East Of the Russian Federation

      1. Mongolian Group Etugen Invited to Israel

      The traditional Mongolian performance group Etugen has been invited to
      perform at the 20th International Ma'ataf Festival in Raanana, Israel
      July 3-13, 2005. The group consists of two morin khuur (horse-head
      fiddle) players, yatga (half-tube zither with a movable bridge), a
      throatsinger, a long singer and a female traditional dancer. Overtone
      or throat singing is a special technique in which a single vocalist
      produces two distinct tones simultaneously. One tone is a low,
      sustained fundamental pitch (a kind of drone) and the second is a
      series of flutelike harmonics which resonate high above this drone. The
      leader of the group is Bayarsaikhan, who is one of the most
      accomplished morin khuur players and makers in Mongolia.
      Ma'ataf is a non-profit organization whose goals include bringing
      world folklore to Israel's cities, towns and settlements. The
      International Folklore Festival in Israel has been continuously held by
      Ma-ataf since 1985. Each year, 10-12 folk dance groups are invited to
      perform at venues all over Israel. To the best of our knowledge,
      Etugen is the first Mongolian group invited to perform in Israel.

      2. Navajo Filmmaker Shonie de la Rosa

      Sheephead Films Presents: "G" Methamphetamine on the Navajo Nation
      Best Public Service Award at the 29th Annual American Indian Film
      Festival
      Methamphetamine has reached epidemic status on the Navajo Nation
      within the past two years. Up close and personal interviews with Navajo
      methamphetamine addicts and recovering addicts allow the viewer to see
      and hear the painful stories these people have to tell about their
      addiction to the drug. Additional interviews with Tuba City Senior
      Criminal Investigator Greg Adair, Indian Health Service Doctor Thomas
      J. Drewhard, and Navajo Nation Vice President Frank Dayish, Jr., bring
      a more in-depth view of how methamphetamine is affecting the
      communities, families, and people of the Navajo Nation.
      The film "G" Methamphetamine on the Navajo Nation is available for
      download at http://www.sheepheadfilms.com
      The film was directed by award winning Navajo film makers, Shonie and
      Andee De La Rosa from the Navajo Nation in Kayenta, Arizona.
