"Though we journey down a thousand roads, all our roads lead home." The lives of four Native Americans take a significant turn as they confront the crises that arise in a single day. A young Inupiat girl, a Navajo gang banger, a Mohawk stockbroker, and a Quechuan healer journey through the epic landscapes of Alaska, New Mexico, Manhattan, and Peru, drawing strength from their tribal past to transcend the challenges of the day and embrace the promises that await them.

Superb short piece
25 January 2007 | by JohnRLSee all my reviews

The biggest flaw in this piece is that it is too short. Each segment could have been expanded just a few minutes to give more detail of how each segment's subject ("hero") improves her/his situation by connecting with the Traditional roots of her/his culture. The photography is breathtaking; the music superb; the story line solid.. It's just about 15 - 20 minutes too short. Well worth buying if you can get the DVD.. If it isn't for sale to the general public, it ought to be. A Thousand Roads is a classic without clichés or focussing on negatives such as alcohol or drug use, & it's almost brand new. I love being wowed, & this piece wows me. I rattle my tongue for A Thousand Roads.
