This movie was much more than just fighting for their land but for their rights as human beings to their unique culture and way of life. Struck a chord with me.

A bit put off by the white woman being front and center in a story that affected Indian lives and lead to their deaths, not hers. Chafes me. Well done for what it was.

This is an American story about its peoples from every perspective. Only a few had enough courage to stand up and tell their truth. America didn't want to listen to that tuth then and it doesn't want to listen now. We're doomed to repeat our history as long as we don't value each other enough ...Read more
