Reviews film ever made that captures the real character and spirit of modern Native Americans.
John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
It was shocking to realize that as late as 1998, this was still one of the few movies made by insiders, written, directed, and acted by Native Americans. The father-son narrative is conventional but it has humor and is well acted.
