Great film! Great story! Great music!

I was privileged to see this while living in K-Town. This is just a great, GREAT family movie and Buffy St. Marie sings the title track. She's recently updated the tune on Youtube. You need to see/hear it!

A store called 'Rondy' has this on DVD- stop right now and go buy this movie!!! Go on- you won't be disappointed. Long Live George Attla!
