Redskins, Tricksters and Puppy Stew

This feature documentary hilariously overturns the conventional notion of the “stoic Indian” and shines a light on an overlooked element of Native culture: humour, and its healing powers. Featuring an engaging cast of characters, Redskins, Tricksters and Puppy Stew is an in-depth laugh-a-minute tour of complex issues like Native identity, politics and racism. There’s Don Kelly, one of Canada's hottest young stand-up comics, whose Indian name means Runs Like a Girl. Kelly uses comedy to skewer stereotypes of the apathetic Indian. There’s also Sharon Shorty and Jackie Bear, 2 community healers from Whitehorse, Yukon, who portray Sarah and Susie, elderly Native ladies who discuss their daily activities and their love of Bingo and Kentucky Fried Chicken.
