Informative and factual.

This is a very well done and very thought provoking documentary. Obviously well thought out, the reasoning and history that it includes are a true insight into one of those "hidden" spots of U.S. history. Bluntly, given my own ethnic heritage, I had some preconceived ideas that bordered on the romantic. This film added depth to my views. It actually helped me access a part of my own past. That has to be a plus for any person in watching any film, documentary or otherwise. I own a couple of the Rich-Heape Film productions and this is, I think, one of their best. Kudos to Rich-Heape Films for making a film that brings to life the words of Black Elk (Oglala Sioux) who said: "With all beings and all things we shall be as relatives."
