Fascinating film about identity, and what it means today to be Native American, especially far away from the reservation. What I liked about the film was how it pointed out the diversity of Native American cultures, and the struggle many Indians face to maintain their identity and yet make their way in American society. The film also points out some of the absurdities of proving tribal identities, such as blood quantum. One woman notes she is fully Native American, but she is considered to only be one-eighth Creek, the tribe she's registered with. In the past, however, if one married into a tribe, one became part of the tribe. According to the film, the obsession with blood quantum is the fault of the federal government, which has an interest in making it difficult for people to claim Native American status and, if I understood it correctly, for a tribe to gain federal recognition. I know this is the case with some of the Eastern tribes. The government would like to deny their existence.
