Text extracted from box sleeve: Until recently, Native Americans were not even used to portray themselves in movies or television (with the exception of Jay Silverheels who played Tonto on The Lone Ranger). American Indians have been stereotyped to be non-verbal, naked, drunk savages. Kathy Mastrodi talks with Arloa Wheeler, who founded an AIM group in Springfield, Illinois about growing up Indian. Intersped are pieces from J.D. Blackoot's Crazy Horse album, and commentary.
