Indians Like Us

Indians Like Us film coverA sincere admiration of Native culture gives way to this charming documentary film about a small group of French citizens–called “Savy Western”–who share a passion for everything Native American. Every weekend, they dress in Native regalia and make appearances at various village fairs alongside their countrymen in France.

However, in order to fulfill their dream, they must travel to the United States and meet “real Indians.” Together, they finally manage a two-week drive across the Midwest and discover that the reality of contemporary Native Americans is quite different from their portrayed envisioning. Filled with unforeseen emotion, this road movie visits Pine Ridge, Wounded Knee, and Little Big Horn, and along the way, it captures surreal and enlightening encounters on both sides.
