Racquel Welch did good for herself in this film
12 February 2004 | by (Brampton, Ontario - Canada) – See all my reviews

After watching this film when it first came out, Racquel Welch did well for herself as a Piegan Native woman. She played her part well as Walks Far Woman. As for the authenticity of the film in terms it having a truly Native atmosphere, I thought it was well made! You know how "Dances with Wolves" didn't seem like a Hollywoodish kind of film with the negative stereotypes with Native Americans and all?? Well....... I thought this film didn't have any of that either considering it was a Hollywood flick too. But I've NEVER agreed with whites playing Native roles although Nick Mancuso who's of Italian origin played the character of Horse's Ghost really well. I think that's not morally and ethically right. I think Native North American roles should be played by Native Americans themselves only. That's it.

Well........... anyways............... that's the reason why I gave this film a 7 out of 10.
