Mary Crow Dog, daughter of a desperately poor Indian family in South Dakota, is swept up in the protests of the 1960s and becomes sensitized to the injustices that society inflicts on her people. She aids the Lakota in their struggle for their rights: a struggle that culminates in an armed standoff with US government forces at the site of an 1890 massacre.Written by

We will all die if the whites get their way. They will use this sign.
[holds up American flag]
They will do anything wrapped in this.
Flown upside down, it's their signal for distress. Because each star on this blue field is a state stolen from us! A.I.M. is the new warrior society of this century... bound by the sound of the drum!

I rented this movie because I was interested in what happened at Wounded Knee, both in the 1890s and in the 1970s. This movie was an excellent recap of the 70s standoff, with outstanding and genuine performances. It also goes back to the 1890s to review the outrage committed by US forces against the Lakota Sioux. I highly recommend this movie both as drama and as history.
