Storyline

Mary Crow Dog, daughter of a desperately poor Indian family in South Dakota, is swept up in the protests of the 1960s and becomes sensitized to the injustices that society inflicts on her people. She aids the Lakota in their struggle for their rights: a struggle that culminates in an armed standoff with US government forces at the site of an 1890 massacre.

Quotes

Mary's grandfather: Soon I will make my journey to the spirit world. I will see all my old friends again. Carl Iron Shell, Good Lance. We'll walk with young legs and talk about the mysteries of life. Like where the sunglasses go when you lose them. We'll have buffalo meat, and I'm gonna tell them about what we have done since they have gone. I'm gonna tell them about A.I.M.

Excellent for diversity discussion groups.
14 April 2004 | by (Stockbridge, VT) – See all my reviews

Particularly timely in 2004, as we watch native resistance to U.S. military power in Iraq, this film is also a valuable historical documentary of a movement that all Americans can learn from and be proud of. The equal status of Native American women in decision-making and in economic life is also something for all Americans to strive for.

Politics aside, the story of Mary Crow Dog is personally engaging and the courage of both the Native American activists and Mary's family are inspiring. Humorous, lively, spiritual, passionate, the Native American characters are wonderfully acted, in all their diversity. The non-natives seem stereotyped--this is a film with a message.

I would use this film in diversity discussion groups for all ages. It would be particularly resonant for middle- and high-school kids as it provides models of diverse personal strengths and how they come together in the pursuit of one goal.
