Powwow Highway is available on Instant Watch.  This is a great NA movie staring Gary Farmer.  I highly recommend this movie along with another favorite of mine - Smoke Signals available only DVD.

Hi everyone.  Thank goodness there is a place for us to congregate and discuss all the wonderful NA movies that have emerged.  I hope to see mine on netlix pretty soon also.  I have just published my autobiography (Skeletons in the Closet - available at Amazon or my website, www.newsfromnighteagle.com  that I am going to turn into a made-for-tv-movie or for the 'big screen'. 

 

In 1995 I was having a conversation with someone, who, for the life of me, cannot remember, told me, "You need to watch Thunderheart".  I did and have watched it so many times thereafter that I have each frame committed to memory.

 

Fifteen years later, I connect, through DNA, to a lady who is an enrolled member of the Standing Rock Sioux but whose Grandfather is named 'Raymond Brownthunder'.  You might remember that Val Kilmer's 'character name' in Thunderheart was 'Raymond' and is later referred to as 'Thunderheart'.

 

My family (Spang) is a large one in Lame Deer, Montana and the Lakota are 'cousins'.  I am also Cherokee, of the Bird Clan.  The reason that this movie was so important to me was that I was adopted [in 1949] as a toddler and did not know of my adoption until age 13.  Thunderheart helped me to 'make the spiritual connection' to my NA family.  We still haven't make the physical one but I believe that once my book becomes a movie that this will happen as well.

 

Anyway, I am so glad to be a part of the Native American group here at Netflix and found a list of NA movies, by Dee Stewart.  For some reason though, am unable to get back to her website.  Someone with a list, HELP!

Hi Guys!
I've been away for a while and just wanted to stop by and see how things were going on my fave NetFlix Group! BTW Chaos...I saw the episode on The Navajo Nation and was sickened. I am greatful to Morgan Spurlock for going there and shedding light on how we are continuing to make huge mistakes when it comes to the welfare of one of our most valuable "natural resources". The tribe wasn't important enough so they re-routed their water supply for swimming pools! This made a once flourishing and independent tribe completely dependent on the government. All is not lost though, they are fighting for their water rights and the struggle will continue. Morgan seemed deeply affected by the plight he witnessed and reports that he continues to rise with the sun and give thanks for the new day. Have a great day all!
Enjoi,
Melodi

Check out this 30 Days episode called Life on an Indian Reservation
Morgan Spurlock will leave America as he knows it, without ever actually leaving US soil, to live with a people who many see as refugees in their own country, when he heads west...

You can see this free at HULU.com. Spurlock spends 30 days at the Navajo Nation rez. I didn't realize that the people don't have the right to the water on their own land.

I also have a list, most of them I've seen, but not all. It is hard to compile a list when Native American isn't a category for movies, but I think I got most of them.

"So far Extant seems to be more of a futuristic big brother type of show. And there are very few shocks and not much in the way of SciFi or high tech stuff. But there was a little more action in the recent episode.. "
