Spirit - Stallion Of The Cimarron

For children:
It is a beautiful animated movie! It is the adventures of a young mustang stallion. The film was written by John Fusco and directed by Lorna Cook and Kelly Asbury. The story takes place when the army is fighting the Indian Wars and taking over the soon-to-be western United States. Spirit the young stallion is unable to control his curiosity toward humans. To his surprise, the humans are savages. Spirit end up captured. He befriends a Lakota American Indian boy named Little Creek. Little creek was also brought into the fort and held captive. Little Creek did name the Kiger mustang, Spirit for “Spirit-who-could-not-be-broken". At the end of the movie Little Creek sets spirit free.All my thanks to John Fusco for the subtitle metaphors on wilderness, journey, discovery, hope, love, crossroads and solidarity. A little dedication to all the spirits who could not be broken!
A great website:The American Indian Education Foundation. This foundation  helps real students in real communities on reservations throughout the United States.
