Talks A Lot:
Will no man raise a war party to go free one of our own? Was not Tehan captured from the whites and raised as our own? Has he not hunted with you men and smoked with the elders? Has he not proved himself loyal to the Kiowa? How many times could he have returned to the white man? His heart is with us.
Talks A Lot talks too much!

Because his blood is not our blood, we turn our backs on him now. If no man will fight for one of our own... then I will.

Finally a movie about Native-Americans by Native-Americans
Finally a movie about Native-Americans by Native-Americans. Okay, so some of them are Canadian, so perhaps we should add "Aboriginal." Many of the actors have appeared in other U.S. as well as Canadian films of and about Aboriginal peoples but I'm sure I have never seen a film so dominated by them. And one of them has the courage to say it is not the current generations of "white eyes" who stole their lands, but our forefathers, Gen. Custer, President Grant, John Wayne, etc. This should be required showing in every U.S. and Canadian history class but of course the fundies would most certainly object because of the mysticism.
