A nice diverse look at Native American life.
At certain points it seem the movie was trying too hard to prove that Navajos are just like everyone else, but I liked that. You rarely see movies about Native Americans just living their lives day to day. It's mostly their culture being exploited and over- exaggerated to give it the same myth and legend of the Greek Gods or something.
The movie tells three stories of three different Navajos. A street kid who joins uncle Sam's army to help his growing family, financial, but is struggling to stay off the streets. A beautiful tyranny attempting a modeling career, and a adapted Navajo trying to over come the fear of what her parents told her about her own people in order to find her birth parents.
What I love most about this movie was that it was so down to Earth. I feel I got the best portrait of this culture, that I've never seen in any other movie.
We all of the same story, but we all tell it different. absolutely recommend.
