An Outstanding Documentary
2 October 2010 | by pierce-mn1See all my reviews

I saw this eye-opening film at the Twin Cities Film Festival tonight and it was tremendous. It follows the life of Dennis Banks, one of the founders of AIM, the American Indian Movement and their efforts to make the American public and politicians aware of the difficulties Native Americans have had over the centuries. The broken treaties have led to the movement's activities, climaxing with Wounded Knee. Many people are interviewed, including Banks, his daughter, many of the people who were involved in the movement. We get both the Native point of view and that of the politicians who have resisted their requests for the past 40 years.

The discussion following the film merited discussion, including the lack of true curriculum for the Public Schools regarding Native history.

The movie hasn't found a distributor yet, but it's a Must See!!!
