Trivia

The book on which this movie was based was originally published in 1977 under the title and subtitle "The Education of Little Tree: A True Story," with the author's name given as "Forrest Carter." However, after the publication, it was revealed that the book was not really a true story, and "Forrest Carter" was actually a pseudonym for Asa Earl Carter. Asa Carter was a Ku Klux Klansman and the alleged author of George Wallace's 1963 "segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever" speech. See more »

beautyfull ,touching story
30 April 2002 | by (toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

a very touching journey of a little indian boy to discover his place in the world.This is a perfect movie without pretense ,political correctness just the way life is ... I recommend this movie to anyone big or small you will not be disapointed.

we see simple people leading simple life with their own laws and rules often viewed "immoral" by others and the law. This is one of the aspects movie that I really liked ,way it`s show that many of the "laws" society imposes on us are merciless ,unjust and have no basis in reality of people forced upon.
