Understanding Our Political America Goes to the Movies!

“Thunderheart” with Val Kilmer as an FBI agent sent to investigate a murder on a Lakota Sioux Indian reservation in the 1970’s. Why show this movie as part of our Understanding Our Political America movie series? Because it gives us an opportunity to discuss the often difficult historic relationship between Western Europeans and Native Americans; and, many of the challenges Native Americans face today. Besides that, it’s just a great murder mystery that I know you will enjoy. (Discussion led by Lisa Meunier)
