Real Natives on film

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Video quality horrible. Audio horrible.
Narration beyond horrible. So why 4 stars?
Because these are the real-deal/old-ways Natives and they are on film.
Men & women in their 50's-70's means these folks survived the American Holocaust escaping to Canada to live.
Yes, they are "acting" for the camera, but these early records are so rare.
After satisfying your curiousity about the soundtrack, just watch it without sound and observe the beautiful people.
Watching Baluk wrestle two bear cubs bare-handed, wearing nothing but a breech-cloth or fight a pack of wolves & kill a moose with a stick(spear) must be seen to be appreciated. The man's physique alone makes one appreciate these people's natural prowness...and why europeans were so intimidated."

"It is nice to know that some things endure the test of time. This film was produced nearly eight decades ago and there is still an interest in it. With today's over the top productions, it is nice to see something made during simpler times that is just as entertaining and informative."
You Must See This Movie...

"..if you have any interest in primitive cultures or Native Americans. It is truly an extraordinary film, almost mind-boggling. I saw the second half by accident on TCM and immediately bought it. The other reviews will give you an idea of what it is about, but it must be seen to be fully appreciated. And the fact that it is a silent film makes no difference whatsoever because the images are what makes it so worthwhile. While you're watching just remember that there were no special effects whatsoever used. As I said, mind-boggling!"
