Quotes

Joseph Brandt: As we turned our face to Canada, we left behind a new nation, the United States of America. A nation that was created in our image and that was paid for with the blood of the Iroquois people. But the people of the Long House will survive as long as we keep the Tree of Peace growing and the spirit of the council fire bright. For it is a spirit and a fire that must never be allowed to die.

everyone needs to know what happened

Learning about the American Revolution, we usually hear about the Founding Fathers. Equally important was the role that the Indians played. "The Broken Chain" looks at a pair of Iroquois brothers. It's worth noting that the Iroquois Confederacy was one of the longest continuous democracies in history, and the people who founded the US government looked to it as a guide (only to turn around and demonize the entire race).

Anyway, this is a movie that everyone should see. Personally, I think that Pierce Brosnan should stick to historical dramas instead of action movies. Buffy Sainte-Marie, Graham Greene and Wes Studi (whose autograph I got at Comic-Con last year) also put on great performances.
