In this personal essay film, director Sterlin Harjo looks at the Seminole Indian community of Oklahoma in which he was raised, poetically interweaving family history with stories about the community as a whole. The tone is often apocalyptic; Harjo details how Native Americans were forcibly relocated to Oklahoma in the mid-19th century and notes that many Seminole traditions are currently on the verge of extinction. About halfway through, he narrows his focus to present an ethnomusicology lesson about hymn-singing in Seminole churches and its shared roots with hymn-singing in black congregations in Alabama and predominantly white congregations in Appalachia. This is an interesting development, but it feels anticlimactic after the brutal lessons of the earlier passages.
