Crow Indian

The Crow

The Crow indians live in south-east Montana where the Battle of Little Bighorn took place. Horses became central to their culture, economy and religion after gaining them from the white settlers in the early 1700s. The Crow had a special relationship with these animals and many became accomplished horse whisperers and riders.
Kennard Realbird is a traditional horseman. His grandfather, Joe Medicine Crow, remembers when the prairies were filled with the Crow's horses. But white ranchers who used the land to graze their cattle put pressure on the government to get rid of the horses. The slaughter of thousands of horses ensued and the Crow's way of life changed forever. Unemployment and poverty are now common, and Yvonne Ellis asks if their former beliefs and traditions can survive in a modern world.
