  • Chase and Status Video

    I thought this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9pU9FPz-dk was completely cinematic and beautiful and harrowing and it had me right up until the last scene.While rooted in reality, images of dead Indians dying tragic and senseless deaths are images and impressions fixed on a loop and they become reinforced again and again in the collective consciousness. This video conveys the idea that Indians are tragic, will always be tragic and no amount of sobriety or spirituality will atone for it.But maybe that's the point. And maybe I have to be a rez Indian to get it. I heard one Indian…
