Movie-A-Day #166: Smoke Signals (1998).

June 15, 2011

Today is Native American Citizenship Day, commemorating the day in 1924 when Native Americans were finally recognized as full American citizens. They’ve been treated pretty poorly in movies over the years, even by well-meaning filmmakers, but then again, that’s the same way they’ve been treated in society as well. One exception is the great “Smoke Signals,” which gives a pretty entertaining but clear eyed view of life on the rez. It’s also the first feature film completely created and produced by Native Americans.
