Quotes

Narrator: Sky-treading bird of the prairie, wonderful fawn-eyed one, when you are beside me my heart sings. A branch it is, dancing. Dancing before Wind Spirit in the Moon of strawberries. Earth smiles, the waters smile, and even the sky of clouds smiles. But I, I lose the way of smiling when you are not near.

Indians are the forgotten heroes
19 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

I'm surprised nobody has reviewed this title, since it is available on an excellent Shanachie DVD, and realistically presents through actual photographs the Indian side of the so-called Indian Wars, including, of course, Custer's defeat at Little Big Horn. The movie is soberly narrated by Walter Brennan. It's quite startling at first to hear and see Brennan as he really was, rather than the toothless character he played in such films as "The Far Country". Fortunately, we soon get over our surprise as Brennan takes us through a brief but moving history of treaties signed and treaties broken, paralleled by the utter destruction of the Indian way of life. Needless to say, the movie tends to gloss over the less attractive sides of Indian life and culture, such as the continual warfare among the tribes themselves and the Indians' belief in killing and savagery as a wholesome and indeed commendable way of living and dying. These subjects are touched upon, but they are glossed over. Instead, the camera tends to focus on the white man's crimes such as the almost total annihilation of the vast buffalo herds and the forced removal of the Indians from their traditional lands to reservations. As might be expected, this "documentary" goes out of its way to present the white man as treacherous and untrustworthy, the Indian as the soul of honor. The truth. no doubt, lies somewhere between these two extremes.
