MASON CITY, Iowa - The Iowa Independent Film Festival is in full swing in Mason City and Saturday some special guests are in town for a screening.
Members of the Iowa tribe of Oklahoma attended the screening of the film, "The Ioway 2" which is a documentary about the tribe who gave the state it's name.
One of the tribal members is a direct descendant of the Chief of the Iowa people.
They say they're proud that such a film was made to educate Iowans about their tribe.
"It's a historical event for us and for our people, and as representatives of our nation we thank the state of Iowa and we're happy to be here,” says Joyce Miller Big Soldier.
"What people will get out of this story is just a better understanding of what happened. We get a version of American history in school that's different in many cases than the actual events that occurred,” explains film maker, Kelly Rundle.
This is the second film documenting the Ioway that film makers Kelly and Tammy Rundle have presented at the film festival.
There will be another showing of "the Ioway 2" tomorrow at 3pm.
