Its a great film!


Appreciated the coverage of several fascinating stories. I am introducing my 9th graders in New York City to the "Dangers of a Single Story" TED Talk on Tuesday. Last year I used the Tribe Called Red's video of their song "Sisters". This year I may put that video in conversation with the work of Maya Ditloff. Thank you and I look forward to you continuing to stretch my perspective and knowledge.


Living in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, I was especially appalled by the video clip of the actress and her friend mocking the Trail of Tears sign. I'm glad she apologized and hope it was genuinely a learning experience. I do wonder who set her straight and what exactly she was told. Will be watching and commenting weekly this semester as a requirement for the online graduate course, Contemporary Issues in American Indian Studies via Montana State University.
