Description

A provocative multi-media project that establishes Native history as an essential part of American history. The centerpiece of this initiative is a television series that tells five heartbreaking, yet inspiring stories. Together they highlight Native ingenuity and resilience over the course of 300 years. The series upends two-dimensional stereotypes of American Indians as simply ferocious warriors or peaceable lovers of the land. Benjamin Bratt narrates.

Customer Reviews

Disappointing

There is very little about Native American culture or it's complexity in this series. There is also an East Coast bias, having very little about the experience of Native Americans in the West, and nothing about the Northwest. To have a program about Geronimo and present maps that completely erase the existence of and have no mention of the Puebloan cultures is absurd. I suppose there is some slight value in this series in presenting a very cursory look at a few historic episodes, but it is a fairly superficial series.

No Such Thing as a Vanishing Race

I agree with notion that the other reviewer raised, there is little if anything about particular groups of Indian peoples and this series is by no means comprehensive. That said, I do give this a top rating because so many people are so ignorant about American Indians and their plight that any time devoted to the study of Indian peoples is a necessary and good thing. I only hope people viewed this series and were inspired to learn more. Read the work of Vine Deloria, Winona LaDuke, Jack Forbes, Phillip Deloria, Leslie Marmom Silko, Sherman Alexie, Paula Gunn Allen, Ned Blackhawk etc etc. Let this series be a means to an end and not the end of your education about the American Indian experience.

Very Beautiful (But no other PBS American Experience programming on iTunes??)

Very interesting snapshots of Native American history and their well-known, ahem, "predicaments" imposed by you-know-who. (Please add other PBS "American Experience" shows...how can this be the only one on iTunes/AppleTV? Thinking especially of the recent documentary on Roberto Clemente...amazing.)
