The Native Americans

Streaming Video - 2005
Rate this:
This program 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 featured are 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 Bighorn. The Native Americans' near-extinction-brought on by contact with non-indigenous peoples-is discussed, along with the renewal of Native American culture demonstrated by present generations.
