Standing Alone

Pete Standing Alone is a Blood Indian who, as a young man, was more at home in the White man's culture than his own. Confronted with the realization that his children knew very little about their origins, he became determined to pass down to them the customs and traditions of his ancestors. This film is the powerful biographical study of a 25-year span in Pete's life, from his early days as an oil-rig roughneck, rodeo rider and cowboy, to the present as an Indian concerned with preserving his tribe's spiritual heritage in the face of an energy-oriented industrial age.

    «Thoroughly enjoyable - made me smile. I look forward to sharing it with Gr. 5 students so they may begin to ask questions about aboriginal people. We know so little and can learn so much.» — iskivermont, 21 Avr 2014

    «Great film and premise... I laughed and it made my day. I shared it with my co workers and they are going to look at it. The best part is we can see video of our ancestors who have passed. » — sstandingalone, 2 Sep 2011
