If Only I Were an Indian...

Top of page

If Only I Were an Indian... accompanies three Indigenous elders from Manitoba on a voyage to the Czech Republic as they relive their past through the native rituals and costumes adopted by their European admirers. Hesitation gives way to humour, fear gives way to friendship, and out of a common passion for the traditions of Indigenous Peoples in North America, a collective hope for the future is born.
