Defending the Fire

Episode 1 of 1

This one-hour special follows the journey of the Native Warrior as he (and she) continue conflict resolution in order to survive and secure resources and culture. The answer to "Why Fight" requires a complex look at the truth through decades of stereotypes and misperceptions. Remarkably, the answer has stayed the same, whether during the 1500s Tiguex War, the Indian Wars of the 1800s, the World Wars, modern Warfare, or continued modern fights for sovereignty and environment. To Protect and Defend - the cohesive thread that connects generations and tribes. Vietnam war veteran and actor Wes Studi (Geronimo, Last of the Mohicans, Hostiles) narrates and appears in the film.
