Educational institutions can now purchase an in perpetuity streaming license for “Searching for Sequoyah”. The license is only available through Turtle Island Productions, LLC, which owns the copyright of the program. The license will provide the institution with the ability to host and stream their own digital file of the program from their own servers or with any third party streaming platform that is encrypted and password protected with no ability for users (faculty, staff, students) to download the program. The term of the license is in perpetuity. The cost is $1000 ($1200 with a copy of the 2-Disc Blu-Ray set), with a sliding scale for non-profit educational organizations, and tribal colleges and schools, that are operated by Tribal Nations legally recognized by the U.S. Federal government , or a state government. Go here to explore your purchase and streaming options. For more information and a sample licensing agreement, please contact James Fortier, owner of Turtle Island Productions, using the contact tab of this website or at james_fortier@live.com.

Blu-Ray sales are coming by Oct. 5, 2023. It will be a 2-Disc set. Disc 1 will include the 57-minute PBS Broadcast version and the longer 62-minute Film Festival version. Disc 2 will include the longer Film Festival version with Spanish subtitles and five bonus scenes (English) that were not included in the original film. The Blu-Ray offering will be available for Educational and Institutional purchase with or without the In-Perpetuity Stream License, and it will also be available for personal home video purchase at a much lower price.
