Review from a Native in Canada., 14 November 2014
Author: dashing-native97 from Canada

Hello my name is Julian, I am currently 17 years old and born 1997 to let you know my age for the future. It was an experience to see my people back in the day and also sad. I am a Cree Native and never really got to learn my language fully, though I believe the people in my community gave up on that since we aren't getting classes for it now from grade 9 to 12. But focus on the movie, it was so sad and inspired me to make a story. Not going into full detail just that this movie is a must see for those who want to know our history and others who want to know from a different race. I believe race shouldn't matter, its sort of stupid to judge someone based on their skin. What if aliens exist? They would say we are stupid for fighting each other. Sorry if this review isn't mostly about the movie but I have to speak my mind on how it made me think through it, not to mention I don't want to spoil too much. Just watch it, trust me. Look at my ratings I find myself a movie critic and this is great.
