Description

Fundraiser for local Native American-led org Mother Nation. Johnny Arnoux (peenAquim~seen from afar) selected this film for us to show for Native American Heritage Month. Although Buffalo Bill (Paul Newman) has fought Indians and Civil War battles, nothing can prepare him for his newest challenge; show business! His Wild West Show is hugely popular, but when he signs a former enemy, Sioux Chief Sitting Bull, for a featured role, a hysterical clash of cultures reverberates far beyond the boundaries of their sprawling outdoor theater. From director Robert Altman (M*A*S*H, Nashville). With Burt Lancaster, Shelley Duvall, Frank "Sitting Wind" Kaquitts chief of the Nakoda First Nation, and Muscogee actor Will Sampson (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest).
