Watch PBS’s Bridge the Gap to Pine Ridge here + comments

PBS just broadcast an hour long program Bridge the Gap to Pine Ridge that I’ve embedded below. It’s a very different look at Pine Ridge style wise to my feature documentary A Thunder-Being Nation in that it is very much a slice of life about Pine Ridge though it feels like the original intent ended […]

Watch Al Jazeera’s interesting program about Johnny Depp’s Tonto & Hollywood’s Native American narrative + my comments

I just saw this a couple of days ago and thought it was worth sharing as it has a strong objective voice from some key individuals from Indian Country. It’s hard to see objectivity to the film in articles written by people who criticised it for a year before seeing it as they clearly don’t […]

Why Johnny Depp spending anything more than a few thousand bucks for Wounded Knee would be a big mistake

A simple dialogue in an interview with the Daily Mail newspaper in the UK has blown up around Indian Country with Johnny Depp expressing his interest to help out someway to see a good resolution to the Wounded Knee land sale issue.

I’ve written before on the dangers of allowing the landowner to “shake […]

Read this Interesting Comment from a Native American in Europe about perceptions there about Indian Country

I got this interesting comment to my post “Do People Really Not Want to see the Happier More Successful Side of Indian Country? – See more at: http://rezbomb.com/blog/?p=714#sthash.T5WxzXUj.dpuf”

“Red Haircrow July 1, 2013 at 8:19 pm ยท Edit Yes, and I deal with it all the time, especially here in Europe. They often want […]

The sale of the land at Wounded Knee and why everyone took the bait

So the 1st of May deadline for the proposed land sale at Wounded Knee came and went and the supposed number of bidders interested in the land don’t seem to have jumped to do a deal. No surprise to me.

Ever since the owner of 40 acres of land on the sacred land at […]

Available to watch online in full for the first time – Watch An Interview with Russell Means – 45 mins

In 1999 I’d been on Pine Ridge less than 3 hours when I found myself through twists of fate at Russell Means’s house as 3 days of political meetings were commencing. Russell asked me to record the event and also agreed to do an interview with me the next morning. For the first time this […]

Chief Oliver Red Cloud’s Passing & the Passing of too many other Participants in my Documentary A Thunder-Being Nation

Oliver Red Cloud has just walked on at the grand old age of 93. He is the latest participant in my feature documentary A Thunder-Being Nation about Pine Ridge Indian Reservation who has passed on since I started filming it back in 1999. Thankfully many were a good age like Russell Loud Hawk (mid 80’s), […]

Johnny Depp and the Dialogue within Indian Country

It seems to me that Johnny Depp’s name is being invoked regularly by various people in relations to Indian Country and I am curious to see how much traffic it draws as opposed to dialogues about the many pressing major issues in Indian Country as well as dialogues about the amazing things going on in […]

Do People Really Not Want to see the Happier More Successful Side of Indian Country?

Indian Country is many many things, many people’s, nations, environments. Some very rich and some very poor. I have been fortunate to spend time with many people from many Nations within Indian Country. The diversity is immense but the one thing that is most consistent and that is the humor.

Yet it is interesting […]

White Clay, A Time for Tough, Level Headed Decisions for the People of Pine Ridge Indian Reservation

Firstly, we would all like to see alcoholism end on Pine Ridge as everywhere else. Though that reality is not likely. It’s destruction on Pine Ridge is seismic in so many dark ways it is hard to bear. An alcoholic may recover but a child abused by one may not ever.

We are all […]
