The title of this documentary, about Dennis Banks –American Indian Movement Co-founder, sends a most powerful message to its viewers: that any time is an appropriate time to sacrifice for what you believe in.
The documentary chronicles the highlights of the life of Dennis Banks, starting with his childhood years as he was taken away from his mother and sent to boarding schools in northern Minnesota. The documentary takes us through the violent years of the American Indian Movement (AIM), culminating in the 71 day siege at Wounded Knee, SD, which is still celebrated in the homelands of the Oglala Lakota Oyate (Pine Ridge Reservation).
The documentary I watched the other night. Awesome.
