A fine series with real Indians, great entertainment and educational
25 February 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I still remember fondly watching this series and recording it on my VCR in the 80s. This series really focused on life of the plains Indians, mainly before the white settlers arrived. All the Indians in this series looked real. A lot of care was given to the details of how they looked,dressed,painted themselves and their horses when they went to war, also to their way of life in the camps or villages, the growing up of the young warriors, how they went to look for a vision and thereby acquired a name. A lot of interest was invested in the life of the shaman and his role in the community. There was also a lot of action: the competition among the adolescents, the buffalo hunting, the warfare among the tribes, and finally the confrontation with the whites. This series was running in the afternoon and targeted at children, but I admit to having been fascinated by it even as an adult. This series was never boring and absolutely deserves to be offered as a (double) DVD. I would certainly buy it immediately. I think this series was equal to or better than Dances With Wolves for people interested in native American life on the great plains before it was drastically changed by the whites with their limitless greed and disregard of mother nature.
