Here is another film I think you will like. I posted about it on Facebook today too. If you have a chance to see it, I personally recommend it highly. You may get emotional watching it, but that is a good thing.
It was all about Walter Littleman and others' experiences at an Indian Boarding School and about finding hope and identity as a Lakota person later, and more about what this really means to him as a person. I learned a lot watching this.

This (bad, even evil) policy backfired in a big way and did not accomplish great purposes; instead, left many people traumatized and lacking focus or self-esteem.

The Thick, Dark Fog points to another website at the end of this enlightening and touching film. It is http://www.nativetelecom.org/.
