April 5, 2013 - A Moment in Vine
Vine Deloria, Jr. was one of the most important spiritual, legal, and historical figures of the twentieth century. A member of one of the Sioux Nation's most prominent lineages, Vine Deloria Jr., rose to the world's attention during the tumultuous 1960's as an agressive and uncompromising advocate for indigenous people across the Americans.
The story behind Vine Deloria, Jr., evokes compassion, while gaining an insight into Native America through Vine's literary works. Through interviews, Vine Deloria, Jr., gives viewers the opportunity to take stock reflect, and understand the Native American experience.
Now, based in part on a series of interviews held during his last years, comes the first documentary to accurately portray this pivotal figure and the impact he had on Indian country and the United States.
