  • Firewolf Bizahaloni-Wong

    What an incredible film! I absolutely loved it & I love the varied artistic expressions. As a Navajo Indian, I’m used to fighting the system & the government, but it gives me great hope & joy to see the beauty of such diversity, true to their individual cultures, yet uniting in the love of their art.

    As each artist’s section finishes, you want it to continue, but you’re excited to meet the next one, and then the next one, and the one after that. What a lovely and interesting piece of work.
