Beautifully photographed and scored, the film captures the sweeping majesty of sacred Native American lands and the people who inhabit them. Told through Ella’s charismatic and poignant lens, her story incites curiosity about the historical and cultural forces that shaped her destiny and identity. At four, Yellowtail was taken from his mother and sent to boarding school where it was forbidden to even speak Crow. Leading historians and elders of his Sioux tribe offer their take on his life and legend, while period accounts, art and artifacts show the fervor that marked his pursuit and capture by U.S. Olympic boxing team, Black Cloud initially rebuffs the idea but is encouraged to reconsider by his manager and mentor (Russell Means).

These messages represent violence and death, but who are they intended for---and who are the intended victims. Multinational corporations and government development projects often engage in practices which threaten not only the environment, but the survival of indigenous cultures. Narrated by Emmy-winning actor Martin Sheen, Broken Rainbow compassionately illuminates a modern Trail of Tears, giving voice to the conflicts faced by indigenous peoples who struggle to survive in the face of Western imperatives. The history of this annual parade is peppered with both verbal and physical violence, challenging ideas of political correctness and freedom of assembly.
Meanwhile, Black Cloud delivers a well-deserved beating to a rodeo circuit creep (Schroder), which gets him into hot water with the law, and the Navajo woman he loves (Julia Jones) puts distance between them until he can figure out his priorities.
Determining that Victorio is at Rattlesnake Springs, the Buffalo Soldiers head in that direction for a confrontation. Beach and Studi are terrific, though the story doesn't bring them together, in the same space, very often.
In the end, Joe's term as coach changes everything for himself, the lacrosse team, his tribe, and the entire Haudenosaunee nation. The supporting cast, including Michael Spears (a Tribal Officer), her mother(Carla-Rae Holland) and the Medicine Man (Lakota Chief David Bald Eagle) all give top notch performances, as they assist Shayla on her journey of self discovery. To discuss this growing problem, representatives of Native communities from around the world came to Smith College to attend the week-long Arctic to Amazonia Tribal Lands Conference.
Join BIORAPHY for a stirring profile of a noble warrior who gave everything he had in a desperate and futile struggle to preserve the freedom and dignity of his people.
As coming-of-age stories go, Black Cloud is persuasive and moving, yet it should be no surprise that Schroder's greatest strength as a filmmaker is drawing very fine performances from his cast. Filmed in the desert of Arizona's Cochise County, Buffalo Soldiers premiered December 7, 1997 on TNT. In showing how Native cultures were systematically oppressed by the white man's westward capitalism, this tragic tale is inevitably heartbreaking, although it ends on a hopeful note of cultural preservation. Arctic to Amazonia features Native activists from North and South America presenting first-hand information on the impact of industrial development upon their land and cultures. Its people’s own name for themselves, their townships, their land we will never know.
Means, so wonderful in Michael Mann's The Last of the Mohicans, is again a solid figure of strength and love, while Spears does a beautiful job of capturing a man ready to trade rage for wisdom.
Sheila Tousey is outstanding in her recurring role as Emma Leaphorn, Joe's wise, no-nonsense wife. Special features include a commentary track with director Steve Rash and coproducers Mark Ellis and Neal J.
Some violent content from the original TNT broadcast has been edited for this DVD release to better accommodate classroom viewing, but Into the West still qualifies as essential viewing for anyone seeking an inclusive dramatization of truthful American history, as opposed to the wildly inaccurate and woefully biased accounts that dominated for decades. They review the history of European colonization in the Americas, critique destructive patterns of consumerism, and contrast indigenous perspectives on the environment with corporate world views. Pueblo Bonito is just one of a dozen large buildings in the shallow canyon 15 miles long and mile or so across Chaco Canyon. The first Indian appointed Bureau of Indian Affairs superintendent of his own tribe, Yellowtail used federal funds to restore traditions and bring back the buffalo.
Schroder delivers on tough action sequences--rodeo riding, boxing--like a pro who's seen it all, too. Powless, a history of lacrosse that includes brief interviews with professional players Brodie Merrill and Zack Greer, a segment about casting, and featurettes on Native American lacrosse and the Onondaga people. In excerpts from speeches presented at the conference, indigenous representatives talk about the struggles of Native communities to protect their land against ecological destruction. Yet the people of Chaco spread far beyond the Canyon itself, holding sway over a region of 40,000 square miles.
In his eighties, he was called on to unite and advise the tribe on the critical issue of coal development. They all contribute to a heartfelt tapestry of bicultural history, both tragic and inspiring, and impressive enough to make its flaws easily forgiven. These battles range from northern Quebec, where the Cree and Inuit peoples are fighting massive hydro-dam projects, to Arizona, where the Havasupai oppose plans to mine uranium near the Grand Canyon, to the Brazilian jungles, where numerous Amazonian peoples have won important victories in the campaign to protect the tropical rain forest. Establishing perhaps a hundred outlying townships linked by skillfully engineered roads and a system of long distance communication. As the threat of global environmental disaster looms over us, mainstream society can learn much from Native peoples. Arctic to Amazonia is an effective catalyst for discussion of environmental issues from an indigenous perspective. We’re trying to understand how and why such an astonishing cultured flowered in the deserts of the South West.
