Hau Donor Tribe,

Wanted to express further appreciation for all you did for us in making Sitting Bull's Voice a successful experience back in 2012. I just completed another film...this time for Crow Creek Sioux tribal members. So I am sharing it here for you to see as an added expression of my appreciation. You are free to share it with others. It is another attempt to give our Native people a venue to tell their own stories. My hope is that in the future others will also get involved in making sure that they are able to tell their own history as they learned it from their elders and cease to have their history defined by other cultures. The name of this documentary is 'Honoring the Grandmothers and All the Women'.
