“….I really came to discover two things. The first one was how incredibly misrepresented the native experience had been in our historical narrative. And secondly, that the Native Americans had so much to teach us all about the way to live, basic values that are inherent in native culture… the valuation of the elders, the larger understanding of family, the belief that there is a spiritual dimension to life that has to be acknowledged at all points, and it just goes on and on…I loved my time on Red Lake… and really took it on as using the skills that I have to try to bring the native experience and native values into the general, public discourse and the books and the film are, sort of, one way of doing that.” – Kent Nerburn
