Still holds up for what it is
7 June 2020 | by jmbovan-47-160173See all my reviews

I loved these films as a kid on a Saturday afternoon. Unwilling half Native American agrees to to help his grandfather, spiritual leader and protector of his tribe from the attention of a young reporter. The grandfather is battling the ancient spirit of a woman scorned for using her powers negatively. Will "Little Hawk" accept the challenge to become the protector of his tribe? Good Ssturday afternoon easy film.
