The story of an emotionally scarred special ops agent; her struggles with the deep rooted racism in small town America, her spiritual journey into the Native American Culture and her violent unraveling.
Billy Jack is a half-Indian/half-white ex-Green Beret who is being drawn more and more toward his Indian side. He hates violence, but can't get away from it in the white man's world. Pitting the good guys, the students of the peace-loving free-arts school in the desert vs. the conservative bad guys in the near-by town, the movie plays definitive late-60s themes/messages: anti-establishment, make love not war, the senseless slaughter of God's creatures, the rape of society (figuratively and literally), two-sided justice, racial segregation and prejudices.

In the scene at the malt shop where Bernard and Dinosaur are picking on the students, he's dumping flour on the kids to make them white. The girl with the headband slaps him and you can see that there is no flour in his scoop. Then he turns and there's flour in it. See more »
He's still in the rapture of the vision. A great Indian holy man, Wovoka, is speaking through him.
You mean they had holy men, like saints?
They sure did! And Wovoka was one of the greatest. Once even Christ appeared to him.

A VERY important film to the products of the 60/70s.
Seeing this film back in '71 when it first came out did very much to change my attitudes and commentaries. Only in the old days would a movie like this create such a great change in a persons psyche. I'm very glad I discovered this film when I did and even though the production and acting qualities are pretty 'low' this movie definitely is a 'must see' for everyone. Enjoy.
