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

beautifully filmed
17 February 2002 | by (WYOMING USA) – See all my reviews

Story based in fact of a mountain man and his indian woman, who accidentally violate sacred burial mountain of the Piute's, the ensuing battle, and eventual truce after quite a few lost lives. A white man who CARES that he had encroached on these peoples sacred land, and would have liked to have just gotten off and gone away, but unfortunately doesn't get to. Very beautiful scenery shots of the Rocky mountains and some pretty nice music, make up for some of the acting. Along the lines of Grizzly Adams, Sellier does a good job on probably a rather tight budget. I enjoy rewatching this from time to time. Even if it is a bit of a dated piece.
