Great Movie
18 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have a large number of Native American friends many of whom are terrific athletes. I see them face the same issues that are represented in this movie. The sense of family and reluctance to leave their motherland are all too real as are the the often misunderstood hesitation on the part of natives to trust the white man. It is a result of many, many years of broken promises. It is a poignant but all to real story of a minority amongst us. The movie was well written and acted and stayed with me for quite a while. I would recommend all native athletes watch it. I have shared my thoughts on it with friends and hope that it will be re-aired sometime in the very near future.
