The "All Nations Pow-wow" that the grandfather and grandson Shane are going to is actually the Gathering of Nations Pow-wow that takes place annually in April in Albuquerque, New Mexico. See more »
When Shane is first standing with Mae Little Wounded in front of her house, May has both hands out admiring the ring, then in the next shot a second later, May only has one hand out, which is held by Shane's hand. See more »

SO glad to see a movie true to the people it depicts!!!
As a Native American I hate movies that play out the old "cowboys and Indians" theme, which severely limited the "indian" movies I would watch. I am SO GLAD to FINALLY see a movie that shows Native Americans as we are in real life rather than the traditional depiction as scalp-seeking-savages, tells our stories, and shows how life on the reservation truly is today. This movie (to me,) breaks down a lot of the negative stereotypes made on our people, which are generally fueled by movies. I think it is very important to have movies like this to help dissolve a lot of racial stereotypes, and share our legends with the newer generation. I was amazed when I saw the depictions of stories I had actually heard as a child, growing up in Tahlequah Oklahoma, the Cherokee Nation Capitol. I wish all movies could be like this... as a matter of fact, I think i am going to watch it again right now!!!
