Abstract:

In an autobiographical documentary, Pete Standing Alone, a Blood (or Blackfoot) Indian, talks about the changes he has seen in Plains Indian life in Canada during the years 1965-1990. Includes film clips from throughout that period as Standing Along talks of the loss of religious knowledge with the deaths of the elders, and how some of the young people are becoming more interested in their Indian heritage. The Sundance ceremony and stone circles found throughout the Alberta, Canada, area are shown along with evidence of the Indian presence there for over 5,000 years; horses were introduced only 150 years ago. As a tribal council member he participated in discussions of treaties and land claims and oil rights -- all factors leading his people away from their Indian heritage.

Pete Standing Alone is a Blood (or Blackfeet) Indian who, as a young man, was more at home in the white man's culture than his own. However, confronted with the realization that his children knew very little about their origins, he became determined to pass down to them the customs and traditions of his ancestors. This video is the powerful biographical study of a 25-year span in Pete's life, from his early days as an oil-rig roughneck, rodeo rider, and cowboy, to the present as a Native concerned with preserving his tribe's spiritual heritage in the face of an energy-oriented industrial age.
