Storyline

This movie is about a young Hopi Indian boy who defies tribal law and frees a sacred, sacrificial eagle. He is banished from his village to the wilderness, but the eagle teaches him hunting skills and cares for him. He eventually returns, and when the other boys in the tribe reject him, the boy runs, climbs to a cliff area and jumps off. Before he reaches the ground, the boy turns into an eagle. At the end, the two eagles fly side by side...one of them wearing a blue-beaded necklace. Written by Anonymous

Would love to see it again!
15 September 2003 | by fivefidsSee all my reviews

As the other reviewer commented, I would love to see this again. I saw it in the theater as an opening short to another Disney film in the late sixties. I forget which film that was, but I certainly remember this one. I do recall seeing this movie on the Sunday evening broadcast of "The Wonderful World of Disney" at least twice after having seen it in the theater. The boy's name is Tutuvina (not sure if I spelled it correctly) and the movie was/is very enjoyable. I would love to see it again!
