Explore the complicated ways the culture and traditions of Native Americans have affected their participation in the United States military. This one-hour documentary tells the stories of Native American warriors from their own points of view—stories of service and pain, of courage and fear.
THE WARRIOR TRADITION dispels the old duality of the noble savage/helpless victim that has dominated our cultural portrait of Native Americans for more than a century. But it is a more complicated story.
Indian warriors have a wide mix of emotions and motives—patriotism, pride, rage, courage, practicality and spirituality, all mingling with an abiding respect for tribal, familial and national traditions.
