"A graphic and eloquent examination of racism in sports and so called 'higher education'. Catching bigotry at its most virulent, this film requires no interpretation - it speaks directly to the problems without blinking. A masterpiece of camera art and realism."
-(the late) Vine Deloria, Jr.
Professor of Native American History
University of Colorado, Boulder

“This film is a prerequisite for anyone wishing to understand the plight of Native Americans today.”

“Powerful in showing the struggles of Native American groups, and the reactions of those who don’t understand what is so wrong with the Cleveland Indians logo, the name Washington Redskins, and others.”
-Chicago Tribune
