The Hallmark Hall of Fame production Dreamkeeper is a four-hour television miniseries. Teenager Shane Chasing Horse (Eddie Spears) is a member of the Dog Soldiers gang on the Pine Ridge Reservation. His mom (Sheila Tousey) asks him to take his grandpa Old Pete Chasing Horse (August Schellenberg) to the All Nations Storytelling Powwow in Santa Fe, NM. Shane owes money to some gangsters, so he agrees in order to get out of town. As they drive across South Dakota in a beat-up old Ford, Grandpa tells stories about magical Lakota legends. The stories are re-enacted with the help of computer-generated images. Dreamkeeper was broadcast on ABC in 2003. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide

Native American Mythology Presented Respectfully by jmwagner66 April 8, 2013 - 4:34 PM PDT
It's nice to see a variety of Native American legends/myths presented with the same respect shown for greek and roman mythology. It is a bit strange to have the stories pulled from so many disparate cultures, most having no cultural relationship to the lead characters, but still, better than so many other "native american" themed films. Casting Gary Farmer and John Trudell as Iktomi (spider) and Coyote is genius. Small parts but very memorable.

The use of special effects to generate the traditional monsters is also appreciated. As is the lack of a sepia filter. Well done, August.
