Overview

Throughout history, few minorities have fallen prey to as much abuse, disenfranchisement, manipulation and savagery as Native Americans.

Overview

Throughout history, few minorities have fallen prey to as much abuse, disenfranchisement, manipulation and savagery as Native Americans. Violently driven out of their indigenous lands by invasive American and British governments that disregarded their claims as rightful territorial owners, the tribes suffered further indignity by getting relegated to footnotes in American history books. This compilation of four disparate but thematically-linked documentaries from the Mill Creek label works toward preserving the Native American legacy. As narrated by James Earl Jones (with additional vocal work by James Garner and Crystal Gayle), the first film - 2006's Trail of Tears: Cherokee Legacy - travels back to 1830, when President Andrew Jackson set forth the controversial Indian Removal Act that drove the Cherokee people from their homelands. The second film, 1997's Native American Healing in the 21st Century, offers a sweeping look at the groundbreaking healing methods employed by Native Americans, and traces their contributions to modern medicine. The third documentary, 2000's Black Indians: An American Story, again features narration by James Earl Jones, in its tale of an unusual and oft-overlooked ethnic subculture in the U.S. that blends Native American and African American heritages. Finally, the 2008 Our Spirits Don't Speak English: Indian Boarding School delves into the uniquely Native American perspective on boarding schools, and relays the sad tale of how many tribal children were snatched out of their homes by the U.S. government and forcibly reeducated in the ways of Western society.
