MORE THAN BOWS AND ARROWS
Winner of 11 major awards, this classic program is one of the few attempts to search the files and begin to detail some historical facts about Native North Americans. Along with citing the many contributions the First Nations made to the development of the United States and Canada, viewers are also informed about certain everyday but extraordinary activities like net fishing off cliffs over a Northwest river. The video also shows prehistoric mounds that rival the pyramids of Egypt and examines early mines and medicine men as well as the ancient Hohokam irrigation canal system in Arizona. The video is narrated by Dr. N. Scott Momaday, a Native American who won a Pulitzer Prize for his work in this field.
