Abstract:

Explores the many similarities among tribal nations, including a profound respect for nature, myth, and tradition; matriarchal governance; a communal lifestyle; a belief in an afterlife; and the use of pictographs, symbols, and patterns rather than an alphabet-based language. Also features brief scenes of re-created warfare: the French and Iroquois vs. the British as a part of the Seven Years' War, and the Sioux and Cheyenne vs. the U.S. Cavalry at Little Big Horn. Discusses the Native Americans' near-extinction brought on by contact with non-indigenous peoples, and the renewal of Native American culture by present generations.
