EXCELLENT DOCUMENTARY
10 November 2018 | by rockenkaySee all my reviews

I watch documentaries and this one is really powerful.. PBS's; Independent Lens, is one of the better resources for good docs anyway and this one does a great job covering First People's history and the healing being done within their communities.. Intelligent and insightful, it tells a story of struggle and destruction to their family structure, through laws meant for redefining an entire people.
