i loved this movie it gave me real inspiration and hope for our future as indigenous people of this land.. remember there was no border before.. i am Native American but we are the same in my eyes... we share a lot of the same struggles and also strengths.. much love and respect for the activists and actors acting there parts... especially Efren Ramirez, Micheal Pena, and Alexa Vega. i loved the part when her dad was telling her that the reason that people don't want to fight chicanos is because they don't give up.. that was so cool.. i am not afraid to stick up for what i believe.. and i believe the same bout native people.. we never give up... AIM (American Indian Movement) look at their success.. peace i'm out
