Powerful Story of Truth and Hope
16 September 2019 | by chrisboinlajoSee all my reviews

Jim Warne's tells the truth in a story for all Americans to see. History is written by the winners and it rarely the contain the key elements of the truth when told to future generations. Especially in the case of the American Indians, who have persevered through generational trauma that even effects their youths of today. Through documented historical facts, Jim is able to speak honestly in a voice that powerfully tells of a horrific past, with the a tenacity of people that are forever hopeful in this 7th Generation that will bring their beautiful culture to the world to heal the divides and unite humanity.
