Healing the Warrior's Heart

This newly released one-hour documentary examines the emotional trauma of war through the prism of American Indian tradition and ceremony. The film reveals the central role that military service plays in American Indian life and explores the spiritual traditions that help returning American Indian soldiers reintegrate into society.

Narrated by actor Peter Coyote, the film was produced by the Western Folklife Center's Taki Telonidis, in collaboration with Gary Robinson of Tribal Eye Productions, and KUED Channel 7, Salt Lake City's PBS affiliate.  

Gary Robinson (Choctaw/Cherokee) will discuss the documentary and answer questions.  Much of his work has been about or on behalf of American Indian tribes, organizations and businesses, creating video programs and educational materials on the history, culture and contemporary issues of indigenous peoples. His non-fiction book, From Warriors to Soldiers, recounts the history of American Indian service in all branches of the U.S. military.
