Poppy left the next week, she got to be a waitress in Toronto. Frank said he really didn't give a shit, but I know he didn't mean it. Coyote put the books away. He was always getting in fights after that. Sadie, I didn't see much anymore. She got organized about the trial and trying to get more attention for Native issues, and I know that's really good. But it was a long time and I missed her.

I had to bid over and over at an online auction to get my copy. I loved everything about the movie. The casting was superb and the humor could be seen even though the plot line was of a dark nature. I am not Native, and can only guess that this is a close approximation of life on a Reservation to some degree. This film has caused me to wonder many evenings what was factual and what was fictional. Obviously, there are still some stereotypes regarding both people, Whites and Natives. What I liked was that the movie showed some real issues without getting too preachy. It pointed out what some of the basic problems facing Natives are and gave the audience a chance to learn through humor, and yes, horror. Since watching this Movie for the first time, I tend to watch for similar movies, such as Smoke Signals and Cowboys and Indians. I have not been disappointed yet.
