DreamKeeper (2003 TV Movie)
Grandpa: It has been said that the young people of today are our warriors of tomorrow. I look at you and say, 'we're in big trouble.'
Shane: You know, sometimes you can be a mean old man.
Grandpa: We're Sioux. Pine Ridge, South Dakota.
Tehan, Red Headed Stranger: Hey, all right. My great-grandmother's grandmother, well, her aunt - she was one-third Kiowa.
Grandpa: Ah Kiowa - strong Nation.
Tehan, Red Headed Stranger: Yeah, hey, could I hitch a ride with you, brothers?
Shane: No. No room, man. We're towing a horse.
Tehan, Red Headed Stranger: That's cool, man. Hey maybe I'll catch you at the powwow.
Grandpa: Maybe he's trying to be connected.
Shane: 'Cause they stole our land? Now they want our sweat lodge?
Grandpa: Their fathers stole our land. Long ago it was said, 'the white man would look on in disbelief as his sons and daughter began to adopt the Indian way. To learn what their fathers didn't understand.' Yeah... he's a wannabe. He wanna be connected.
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.
Broken Lance: Talks A Lot talks too much!
Talks A Lot: 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.
[from the Red Headed Warrior legend]
Grandpa: Some of us understand that having an enemy gives us a chance to be warriors again. In the days of the grandfathers, when our enemies came, we staked ourselves to the land. We faced whoever or whatever it was that made war against our people. If one of us fell, another one took his place. The questions is not why did my son get off the road? It is who will take his place and not let the enemy take us down?
[speaking about Shane's father]
Grandpa: 'Me,' 'I' - that's all I hear from you! There's no word in our language for 'me,' 'I,' just 'we, 'us.'
Shane: There they go, a van full of Cheyenne hotties and we're stuck here with the horse that rode in with Lewis & Clark.
Shane: Hey, borrow some cash?
Janine: Oh, yeah, there's a million dollars in casino money underneath my dresser. Just leave me a few thousand.
Grandpa: Who the hell's chasing us?
Shane: Just some guys, grandpa.
Grandpa: They must be after Three Moons, my war horse.
Shane: No, they're after my ass!
Grandpa: Better off with my horse.
Grandpa: It's gonna rain.
Shane: What, the spirits tell you that?
Grandpa: No. The bullet I got in my hip in France tell's me that. It hurts like hell when it's gonna rain.
Sky Woman: ...We must all lose what we love sometimes. It is the way.
[from the Thunder Beings legend]
Grandpa: I can almost smell the fry bread. We're not far.
[traveling to the powwow]
Old Pawnee Woman: What does Chief Loudmouth say today?
[from the Dirty Belly legend]
Shane: Shall I tell you stories? Shall I tell you how it was told by the old ones to my grandfather's grandfather long ago? This is how it was told to me. Let me tell you, and you remember to pass it down, for this is how it happened long ago.
Multnomah Chief: What can be done, Raven. What can be done to appeal to the Creator?
Raven: The Great Mystery is just that - a mystery.
[from the Tsiunk legend]
Sam: Casino on the rez now, yeah?
Grandpa: Gonna go over there one night. I'd like to win a million dollars.
Sam: What would you do with a million dollars, old man?
Grandpa: Buy a sports car, buy me a young, white woman who wants an Indian name, and drive to the All Nations Powwow in style.
Grandpa: Before I leave this world, I want...
Sam: You've been saying that for the last 30 years, Dad. You're like the Eveready Rabbit, big drum and all.
Sam: He pulled you on the powwow trail, didn't he? Him and his powwows. Jeez. Powwows ain't real, you know. Just Indians dancing for the white man for our bread and bolony.
Sam: Then why are you doing it?
Shane: 'Cause he's my grandfather, and it means something to him.
Grandpa: If, from your vision, you have learned only this, grandson, then already you have learned much, for true power and wisdom comes from within. When a man realizes his oneness with all creation, when he realizes that at the center of the universe dwells a power greater than his self - this center is everywhere. It is within each of us. Go now and walk the good red road. Mitakuye oyasin. Mitakuye oyasin, all my relations...
