The 7-minute 16mm film Real Indian (1996) produced, directed and edited by Lowery is described as a "lighthearted, very personal look at the meaning of cultural identity," based on Lowery's experience of not fitting into society's stereotypes for Native Americans, imposed by both whites and other Indians. The film was screened at the Sundance Film Festival, the Women in the Director’s Chair Film Festival, the American Indian Film Festival, and the Lumbee Film Festival. It received awards for Best Short Film at the South by Southwest Film Festival, and Best Indian-Produced Short Documentary at the Red Earth Film Festival.

The 14-minute video documentary Sounds of Faith (1997), also produced, directed, and edited by Lowery, is about Lumbee Indian music, religion, and family, and features Baptist Minister Rev. Michael Cummings, Attorney-at-law Jody Cummings, and the Foy and Bloss Cummings family. The film was screened at the Sundance Film Festival, the Smithsonian Institution, the New York Native American Film Festival, and the American Indian Film Festival.

Malinda Maynor Lowery co-produced the documentary film In the Light of Reverence (2001), which was part of the Earth Island Institute's Sacred Land Film Project. The film, which was produced and directed by Christopher McLeod, accounts of the struggles of the Lakota in the Black Hills, the Hopi Tribe of Arizona and the Wintu in California to protect their sacred sites. The film won the Henry Hampton Award for Social Change Documentary, the Best Documentary Feature at the American Indian Film Festival, the Eagle Award at the Taos Talking Picture Film Festival, the CINE Golden Eagle, and the Jury Award from MountainFilm.

Since August 2017, we have added ethnic and racial identities for individuals and families represented in collections. To determine identity, we rely on self-identification; other information supplied to the repository by collection creators or sources; public records, press accounts, and secondary sources; and contextual information in the collection materials. Omissions of ethnic and racial identities in finding aids created or updated after August 2017 are an indication of insufficient information to make an educated guess or an individual's preference for identity information to be excluded from description.
