But some awesome kids from Pine Ridge put together this short, but powerful video in response to the special, which I love:
Reminded me of this quote from Adam Sings in the Timber: "It often seems as if America has only two frames through which to view its Native culture: ceremony and pageantry or poverty and addiction."
There's a lot of power when we get to represent ourselves.
Youtube: More Than That
If you're interested in some of the criticisms of the special:
Indian Country Today: Children of the Plains was little more than "Poverty Porn"
The actual special:
ABC 20/20: "Hidden America: Children of the Plains"
Between Pageantry and Poverty: Representing Ourselves
