Having brutally occupied the homeland of Native Americans, the invading Europeans forced the indigenous population onto reservations – land that was specifically selected because of its apparent worthlessness. To add salt to wounds that are still open, multinational energy companies and others are coming back to extract the hidden mineral wealth of the reservations and are leaving a trail of toxins that, if unchecked, will make the land unlivable for centuries to come. But Native American activists are fighting back, and their inspirational stories are chronicled in “Homeland: Four Portraits of Native Action” against the backdrop of some of the country’s most spectacular landscapes.

“Homeland… represents the very best in documentaries being produced in the U.S. today.”

    Waiting for the Electrician or Someone Like Him, the first album by The Firesign Theater in 1968, describes the American Indian experience with brilliant macabre humor. Anyone interested in the American Indian Experience should listen to side A of this album. I have never been able to get it out of my brain.
