At twenty-six, Noel Starblanket was one of the youngest Indigenous chiefs in North America--twice elected chief of the Starblanket Reserve, and also elected vice-president of all-Saskatchewan Indigenous organization. His great-grandfather's advice was to "learn the wit and cunning of the White man." That he did. Here he is seen in action, a chief with a briefcase, working with government officials for grants, running for public office, talking down his opposition, and solving the domestic problems of his reserve.

    I was one of the young missionaries in this film. Whatever negative thoughts Noel may have expressed towards white people it wasn't shared by Irvin or Fred. I love them and their families whole heartedly. Even named my youngest daughter after Denita, One of Irvin's daughters. The memories I have from my time there will never be forgotten, or the fine people who give them meaning.

    I love the fact that this guy is passionate about helping the people on his reserve but quite frankly, his negative and non-loving attitude about white people will cause his ultimate downfall. A person goes much farther ahead when they are moved by love not hatred.
