Educational Entertainment Aug 31, 2008
This movie captures the beauty of Thomas YellowTail & the sacredness of ritual, primarily the sweat lodge & Sundance. This man has saintly qualities. The film is an excellent resource for educational purposes in schools & beyond. Those featured in the film are the "real deal". It is rare to witness such an authentic representation of Native American ritual. Even rarer to find this in a well put together package for educational & informative purposes. YellowTail does offer native prayers & a very short understanding of basic words in his native tongue. Beautiful.

This is a wonderful book. The photographs are incredible and the writing is informative, not at all what you might have been taught. I have a new appreciation for the Sun Dance. Get the accompanying DVD as well and buy one for a friend!
