Synopsis
The Way West gives an unprecedented look at the untold history of the West. Bypassing brave pioneers and burly outlaws, director Ric Burns focuses on Native American sacrifices. The Way West: The War for the Black Hills, 1870-1876 documents the continuing battle for territory between these years. With the completion of the transcontinental railroad, American expansion was inevitable. The Black Hills represented all tribal lands and became the focal point for Indian rights. When the U.S. broke the Lakota and Cheyenne treaties by searching for gold in the Hills, a showdown occurred. The result was Custer's Last Stand at Little Big Horn, an event that led to the downfall of Native American independence. ~ Sarah Ing, All Movie Guide
