Our Totem is The Raven 1974 Native Film


This is  "Our Totem is the Raven". It's a great short film about life. It's not that short so make some popcorn, kick back and take a journey with Chief Dan.
I can't find this movie anywhere, (except this small version on an archive site), if anyone knows where I can find it, let me know. The scene opens with a young man playing the harmonica, the song he is playing was adapted by Kieth Secola from a traditional native song, Kieth is a Minnesota "Cousin",(name for a fellow Indian). Strangely enough, the first instrument I learned to play home on the Rez was the harmonica.
I know this is a short film, but I remember seeing it somewhere, it has remained in the back of my mind ever since then.
