What an honor to Watch Unbowed
1 December 2004 | by (America) – See all my reviews

As I watched this movie I said, 'it's about time we had some truthful and honest movies to be place in a nature sating'. We need more movies like this. Very interesting movie, points and surprise that the black race would be prejudice toward the Indian race consider the two was in the same situation. As a black Native American Indian I was please to watch a movie that was so detail and excellent acting my hat goes off to the director and choice of performers. If my great grandmother were alive she would have been pleased, it would have been an honor to watch a movie about her own life. My great grandmother was a Cherokee Indian woman that lived in a difficult time and the screenplay of Waka Mani and Cleola was if I was watching her life. Thanks for the pleasure and the educational events.
