Exclusive Look at New Moon's Quileute Nation
09.25.09 by REELZ
Ever since Stephenie Meyer introduced the Quileute Nation to the world with her Twilight Saga, legions of fans have become interested in the Nation and its legend of a tribe descended from wolves. And while the Quileute have welcomed most fans to La Push, the Nation hasn't granted the media access to gather footage and imagery within the tribal lands.
That's why we're so honored and excited that ReelzChannel was allowed to capture the Nation's rich heritage and cultural traditions during a recent visit. Here's what Quileute spokesperson Jackie Jacobs had to say:
It was very important to this Nation to partner with an organization that we felt understood that the non-fictional Quileute story is more complex, multi-dimensional, and sacred than [the one] everyone has been exposed to. We have been inundated with requests from various outlets to tell the story but felt that
ReelzChannel embodied the authentic direction we wanted to explore while keeping it fun and interesting for the fans.
Our portrait of the Quileute Nation premieres on the next episode of Twilight Weekly: Spotlight, Monday, September 28th at 10 PM ET / 7 PM PT. Along with an exclusive look at the locations re-created for the movie, the show includes interviews with tribal elder and storyteller Chris Morganroth III and Roy Black, known to the tribe as "Jacob’s Grandfather." Actress
Tinsel Korey (Emily) also shares her experience. Below is a sneak peek at the show.
