The movie states that Caroline Weldon was a widow, which is inaccurate. She was married to Bernhard Claudius Schlatter, and left her husband for another man, with whom she had a son. She reportedly took her son with her to the Sioux settlement to meet Sitting Bull and live among the native Americans. She eventually got a divorce in 1883. See more »
I absolutely loved Michael Greyeyes portrayal of one of the most iconic Native people in history. It was refreshing to see a Native person being seen as a 3 dimensional person with a sense of humor, intelligence, humility, etc. I am a native woman and was delighted to see our people seen as people. The story wasn't word for word accurate but the heart of the story was captured with grace & dignity. Thank you for making this film and respecting the person & people it represents.
