News From Indian Country

My Ojibwe grandfather was taken from his family when he was young and was put into a boarding school. I don’t have many details and he never wanted to talk about it. Ojibwe was his first language, but he didn’t speak it around his grandchildren as he didn’t want us to be treated the way he was. Like all the children taken, he had his hair cut off, his clothes and any traditional items destroyed and he was given a uniform. He was beaten for speaking Ojibwe. The few times he did mention it were with bitterness.

A breakout low budget hit, Chloé Zhao's The Rider mixes up real life and fiction in ways that have never been done so well before onscreen. Real-life saddle bronc rider and Lakota Sioux Brady Jandreau, is a daredevil 20-year-old with a busted head, hand and hip. In the movie he plays busted up rodeo rider Brady Blackburn, along with his real life fellow rodeo riders and Asperger afflicted sister.
