This well-researched documentary by Rich-Heape Films presents a troubling portrait - and indictment - of the U.S. government's dismal failure to provide health care in fulfillment of federal treaty and trustee obligations with American Indian nations.

Peter Coyote narrates, inviting viewers to engage in the national dialogue on health care from a native perspective. The powerful images and voices from some of the most vulnerable communities in Indian Country provide historical evidence of just how poorly health care services have been funded and managed, while hundreds of treaties promising health care, education and protected status in exchange for millions of acres of land, have continued to be dishonored and ignored by the federal government. Current perspectives are equally disheartening: the introduction and substitution of food commodities for traditional native diets is discussed as a major contributing factor to the alarming increase in diabetes, heart disease and other native health concerns.

"Don't Get Sick After June" is a quality feature film production, and its sobering message will provoke debate. As a native educator in higher education social sciences, I have shared the film in my coursework, and highly recommend it to anyone wishing to understand the historical and contemporary experience of Native Americans.

This movie details many of the abysmal failures of the Indian Health System. This was never what the government intended, but the system has been so corrupted and under-funded. The Indian Health Service is a contributor to the ongoing genocide of the Native Americans.

This is an excellent documentary, but like all Indian issues, the people who need to see this won't see it. There are many excellent Indian documentaries. It is quite unfortunate that the colonizers have no interest. Of course that is one of the reasons they are colonizers. They have no conscience where Indians are concerned.

Very moving. A great look at the historical impact of colonialism and failed treaty negotiations and the state of IHS.
