Longhouse Media was co-founded in 2005 by Tracy Rector and Annie Silverstein. Its signature youth program, Native Lens, was established in 2003 by 911 Media Arts Center in partnership with the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community as a model media literacy program for Native youth. Longhouse Media is an Indigenous media arts organization that nurtures the expression and development of Native artists through traditional and modern forms of storytelling, with an emphasis on cultural identity. It supports the use of media as a tool for self-expression, cultural preservation, and social change.
