Buddy Red Bow is struggling, in the face of persecution, by greedy developers and political in-fighting, to keep his nation on a Montana Cheyenne Reservation financially solvent and independent.

He's even got his war pony, Protector: a beat-up old wreck of a car. Buddy's sister Bonnie has been arrested in Santa Fe, and together Buddy and Philbert set off on a road trip to look after her kids and go bail her out. However, Bonnie's arrest has something strange about it as her friend Rabbit points out. As the miles roll by, Philbert's faith challenges Buddy's hard-edged view of the world (and occasional bout of reckless violence), and together they face the realities and dreams of being Cheyenne in the modern-day US as they fight to free Bonnie and her children and elude the Feds.
I stumbled across this movie on Netflix (it's available for streaming there) and thought I'd share it here for a few reasons. One, it seems relatively unknown, which is a right shame considering how good and humorous it is. The actor who plays Philbert Bono is absolutely terrific and really makes the movie great. I also figure this sort of story and setting is something that a few people on this forum would be interested in. Parts were filmed on actual reservations.

Also, Wes Studi makes a brief appearance, and he's...well, he comes in at about 20 seconds in this clip, and he's not quite the same as Eytukan...

Yeah, I didn't notice that was him either until I saw the credits, and got such a laugh when I watched it again and realized who he was. I think he had only just begun his acting career at the time.

Necroposting, I know, but not too long ago I found the entirety of Powwow Highway uploaded onto YouTube. It's right here. Check it out if you've got an hour and a half to spare.
