Thursday, October 26, 2017 — Horror. Some people enjoy subjecting themselves to the gore and suspense of horror movies and books. It’s a genre where some Native American artists are also finding a niche. The monsters, blood and supernatural villains are creeping their way into Native film and literature. Some of the stories even reference Native traditions. As we head into Halloween, we hear from some Native horror creators and fans about what makes Native horror special.
