Colt is a documentary filmmaker whose work has been
featured on PBS. Colt recently partnered with filmmaker Dustinn
Craig to write, produce, and direct Geronimo in the five-part
American Experience miniseries We Shall Remain,
a new documentary series concerned with key events and leaders
in Native American history, scheduled for broadcast in 2009. In
2004, as a Pew International Journalism Fellow, Colt traveled
to Namibia to investigate the racial imbalance of land ownership.
In 2002 she co-produced the Emmy Award-winning series The Secret
Life of the Brain. She is currently working on a film on the
development of the polio vaccine for American Experience.
"The most important thing to us as filmmakers was to examine
Geronimo's life, as much as possible, from an Apache perspective.
We were committed to portraying him as an actor in his own history.
He wasn't a victim of fate. His actions had consequences and did
not represent one unified Apache response to American expansion
