good story of first american growing up in canada
28 September 2020 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

Follows the life of first american Saul White Horse, removed from his family at a very young age. sent off to a church school to learn and follow the white man's customs. we watch him grow up with cruel, christian ways, among all the racism and isolation, then we catch up to the present, as Saul (Ajuawak Kapashesit ) finds his passion: skating. and he's canadian, so of course, hockey. it's a constant struggle. very well done. good story of growing up, being strong, trying to avoid having to work in the unhealthy mines. One of six productions by Stephen Campanelli. Story by canadian Richard Wagamese. it's quite good !!
