Many Americans will acknowledge now that the United States' treatment of indigenous people was horrific, even genocidal. However, most Americans think that "that's all in the past," and that Indians/Native Americans are being treated as equals now, and most certainly, that the massive U.S. theft and retraction of promises (such as treaties) that used to occur doesn't anymore.
This movie documents in vivid, moving, and irrefutable ways that such despicable practices still occur. People in the U.S. who bother to think about these things often feel superior to the Spanish conquerors of the Americas; we think of them now as obsessively in pursuit of gold, and all too willing to slaughter any native people who got in their way. But today's U.S. government, in the service of corporate interests, is doing the same thing--and they're doing it for gold, too. They're basically starving Shoshone Indians into submission so the gold underneath their land can be extracted. And to think (as this film points out) that 80% of that gold goes into jewelry! We talk about blood diamonds--what about blood gold?
See "American Outrage," and then get outraged, and then get involved in fighting the earth-killing lust for gold and filthy profit. You could start, as I did, by asking your local video stores and library to purchase this DVD.
