"Life is a circle and we as common people are created to stand within it and not on it. I am not just of the past but I am the past. I am here. I am now and I will be tomorrow." --Lakota Oyate

The Story :
This documentary tells the story of the meeting between a young Native American from the Lakota tribe, Moses Brings Plenty who is a descendent of the Lakota, and a 12-year-old French boy named Eli Torelli has come here to learn about the Native Americans that fascinated him in France.
One night, Eli dreams of a native man, and the next day Moses Brings Plenty comes to his school to lecture. Moses will become Eli's guide, bringing him to his reservation in Pine Ridge South Dakota, bringing to light and introducing to him the world of the Lakota elders, and the reality of life on a reservation in the present day.
Eli, who is sincere and forthright in only the way children can be, will receive, from the elders, heritage from the past, learning their history, their suffering and their culture.
At the same time he will discover what the fruits of this history are and witness their everyday life on a reservation and the problems they have to deal with from day to day.
Brings Plenty and Eli will continue their spiritual voyage in the past exploring the ghastly history of Wounded Knee in 1890 up to the present . Eli will learn that the problems besetting his friend Moses' people, actually affect some of the of Native Americans of our times.
"They made us many promises, more than I can remember. But they kept one. They promised they would take our land...and they took it." --Chief Red Cloud.
The lack of understanding between cultures is always related to ignorance. We all have many questions about one another we would ask if we could or if we had the courage. Some these unanswered questions about American Indians that have lingered for generations are the subject of this film. Many questions have been blown away by the wind, and many answers have burned in the fires. To get to know ones' neighbor is not to become a neighbor, but rather to learn to respect him and his culture, his roots and what he is.
What to tell ...
Most of you have been living here on this planet under this capitalist illusion for many centuries by thinking the money is in need to live your life ( accept few, like the American Indian Nations or the nations living their simple lives in far away lands, they have been telling you and warning you about this negative events for a long time ... but you never want to listen to them, until now) ... Now you can see how your money world is evil and it is collapsing. The Earth is bleeding under this sick influence. Not just the people, but whole Earth needs the cure. In fact we do not need to look for some new solutions to survive, because we just need to go back to the original natural time where we all belong. The best way how to do it now is just to look around and ask some of the native elders and they will show you the exact true road where to go and what to do. They have been told by the "sky ancestors" to keep the positive knowledge for you to have to survive. Aho!
