After watching this film I really felt for what Mary Crow Dog had to go through in her life before she became part of AIM. The American Indian Movement put pride back into the hearts of the all the warriors and youngsters, including Mary. Despite all her hardships, she was a true survivor partly because of AIM but also because she had the sheer willingness to overcome everything that was put in her plate.
However ........ anyways........... that's why I gave this film such a high rating. The whole story really came straight from her heart and the way she narrated it gave the film more life and atmosphere.
