This documentary takes the viewer on a journey between the past and present, beginning with first contact and the derogatory stereotypes of racist mascots and the movement to change the Washington football team’s name. It then moves to the horror of Indian boarding schools and forced assimilation, the ongoing violation of treaty rights and the prevalence of police violence and suicide on reservations. The film ends with a powerful testament to the healing taking place across Indian Country.
