This moving 3.5 minute video is writer/director Gary Robinson’s interpretation of what it has meant for Native Americans to serve in the U.S. Armed Forces from the Revolutionary War to modern times. This award-winning production was featured in the Veterans Day Short Film Competition held by the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C. Mr. Robinson examines the question: Why does the Native American fight for the U.S., which at one point had sought to exterminate his people? It’s a remarkable survey of Native involvement and service with the U.S. Armed Forces.
The video was written and directed by Gary Robinson. Flute music was composed and performed by Peter Olmos. The video was produced by Tribal Eye Productions. To see further work by Mr. Robinson and Tribal Eye Productions, please click here.
