The legends of the Native American nations come to life in this epic new miniseries, as two generations--a century-old storyteller and his grandson, a troubled 17-year-old boy--embark on a cross-country journey toward self-discovery.
In South Dakota, in an Indian reservation, an old storyteller Indian asks his grandson Shane, who is in trouble owing money to some bad guys, to take his old pony and him to Albuquerque to the great powwow, an Indian meeting. While traveling, Grandpa tells mysterious Indian tales of love, friendship and magic.Written by

The "All Nations Pow-wow" that the grandfather and grandson Shane are going to is actually the Gathering of Nations Pow-wow that takes place annually in April in Albuquerque, New Mexico. See more »
When Shane is first standing with Mae Little Wounded in front of her house, May has both hands out admiring the ring, then in the next shot a second later, May only has one hand out, which is held by Shane's hand. See more »
How can I get a DVD or VHS copy of this movie? I want to save this movie and watch it again. There are some great lessons to be learned. I like that fact that these legends are being saved. Like the line from the L.A. Times TV Times Commentary on Dreamkeeper says, "A lot of our elders are passing, and when they pass, people like myself and like my little sister will need to keep the stories alive. I am hoping that the native youth will embrace this, so people will always know we are still here."
