Storyline

In March of 1621, in what is now southeastern Massachusetts, Massasoit (actor Marcos Akiaten, Chiricauha Apache), the leading sachem of the Wampanoag, sat down to negotiate with a ragged group of English colonists. Hungry, dirty, and sick, the pale-skinned foreigners were struggling to stay alive; they were in desperate need of native help. Massasoit faced problems of his own. His people had lately been decimated by unexplained sickness, leaving them vulnerable to the rival Narragansett to the west. The Wampanoag sachem calculated that a tactical alliance with the foreigners would provide a way to protect his people and hold his native enemies at bay. He agreed to give the English the help they needed. A half-century later, as a brutal war flared between the English colonists and a confederation of New England Indians, the wisdom of Massasoit's diplomatic gamble seemed less clear. Five decades of English immigration, mistreatment, lethal epidemics, and widespread environmental ... Written by American Experience

Great
28 June 2011 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

This is the first of 5 movies describing 300 years long war (1600-1900) between American Indians and white European settlers. That was the longest war in entire history of mankind. The war with a purpose to destroy entire civilizations of indigenous population and to exterminate them like pests. All episodes are so rich, so unexpected, full of unknown historical facts (at least for me, being an European). The systematic genocide on American Indians, which lasted for well over 300 years and almost to the end of 20th century, is very well described and documented with shocking details. This is a must see if you are interested in that part of American history, which was glorified as "How the West Was Won", but in fact was a colonial war and genocide, like no other.
