The mentoring relationship of A Martinez with Blake Heron is magnetic and engages the viewer. Portrays the real struggle that went on between the various factions of the Indian Nation and the white settlers. Russell Means shows the gentle leadership as a chief trying to teach the children the ways of peace. It would be an appropriate film to show as part of the fourth grade curriculum in California schools.
