Storyline

SACRED GROUND tells the fact-based story of a mountain man and his Indian wife who happen upon a partially built cabin and finish it for their own home, not realizing that they occupy a sacred burial ground. A Paiute burial party clashes with the couple and in the ensuing skirmish, the wife is critically wounded while in the middle of childbirth. Bitter over her loss and needing a wetnurse for his baby, he steals one of the Paiute woman who had just lost a baby. In this modern version of Helen of Troy, the battle is on, as he takes on the whole band in a desperate attempt to survive. Written by Dale Roloff

Interesting and different ...................
13 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This story of a mountain man, his Indian wife, and their accidental violation of sacred ground, is both interesting and different. The movie has a gritty, authentic feel to it throughout. This really is minimalist entertainment, almost entirely filmed outdoors in southern Oregon. A couple of annoying glitches crop up, include disappearing and reappearing snow, and Indians who speak their native tongue or English at various times, without any rhyme or reason. Nevertheless, "Sacred Ground" is filled with authentic feeling characters, the standout being Jack Elam. Recommended for those seeking a story that you haven't seen before. - MERK
