American Indian Motion Picture Awards, Coming to a Television Near You
The 2014 American Indian Film Festival starts November 1 in San Francisco and runs through November 9, when it will conclude with the 39th annual American Indian Motion Picture Awards.

The excellent quality and elaborate ornamentation of the helmet indicate that it was made for a very high-ranking nobleman or military official.
It is decorated with applied gold ornament that features the Buddhist mantra Om mani padme hum in Lantsa characters.
