About Bright Path Strong

Inspired? Sign The Petition Now.

For generations, Native American stories and representation have been stolen. From Thanksgiving to sports mascots, from Hollywood to history books, Native stories are overwritten by white media and historians.

This changes now.

It’s time to rewrite history and finally tell the truth — from Native Americans, for all to honor and celebrate. As an icon and hero to so many Indigenous people across North America and beyond, we’re starting with setting the record straight with legendary athlete, Jim Thorpe.

This petition is just the first step in a series of initiatives tied to Bright Path — an upcoming feature film from Pictureworks Entertainment. Learn more about the film at BrightPathMovie.com.

Our Mission:

Bright Path Strong was created to share and amplify authentic Native American voices and stories, past and present. Representation matters, and it’s time we shine a light on our real history, our people, and our resilience — in our own words.

The right path is the Bright Path.
