Shall I tell you stories? Shall I tell you how it was told by the old ones to my grandfather's grandfather long ago? This is how it was told to me. Let me tell you, and you remember to pass it down, for this is how it happened long ago.

Great Indian TV movie. Great performances from almost all of both young and older Hollywood Native American actors/actresses. It's too bad that most of the general public doesn't know these guys's names from Adam but they are all great perfomances in this tele-film. Very cool Native American mythology stories & I'm always into films with the great Eddie Spears and Michael Greyeyes. If you didn't see this when it aired on ABC then check it out when it comes to DVD/Video. Hopefully, one day Hollywood will have a great well-known Native American actor/actress & then hopefully never again will they use Asian,Polynesian or Hispanic actors to play American Indians again. Thankfully, as far as i could tell this film stayed true to the storyline and stories & made sure that they had authentic full to half-blooded American Indian actors. **** out of *****
