Fast Horse: The Blackfoot bareback horse-racing tradition returns in the astonishingly dangerous Indian Relay. Siksika horseman Allison Red Crow struggles with secondhand horses and a new jockey on his way to challenging the best riders in the Blackfoot Confederacy.

Directed by Alexandra Lazarowich

Run as One: The Journey as the Front Runners: In 1967 ten Indigenous athletes ran the Pan Am Games torch from Minneapolis to Winnipeg. Just before they entered the opening ceremonies, the torch was handed to a white athlete.

Directed by Erica Daniels

Emptying the Tank: In her striking portrait of Chippewa female mixed martial artist Ashley Nichols, Caroline Monnet eloquently demonstrates and celebrates the athlete’s inner strength, fortitude, and dedication to her physical and spiritual health.

Directed by Caroline Monnet
