Trivia

When Brian Shaw, the owner of the Edmonton Oil Kings moved his junior hockey team to Portland, Oregon, he named the team the "Winter Hawks" after this film. In order to save money, the team bought used jerseys from the Chicago Blackhawks, which is why the Portland Winter Hawks continue to have jerseys that are similar to the NHL Blackhawks. See more »

Great Movie!
29 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

You are wrong! This is a great movie! I watched it again and again. I loved the scenery. And the music was beautiful. I love Dawn Wells and thought she was great in this part. A wonderful story that gives a sympathetic view of the American Indian.
