The Warrior Tradition:  The largely-untold story of Native Americans who served in the United States military.
The Warrior Tradition explores the complicated ways the culture and traditions of Native Americans have impacted their participation in the United States military. The one-hour documentary, co-produced by WNED-TV and Florentine Films/Hott Productions, Inc., tells the stories of Native American warriors from their points of view – stories of service and pain, of courage and fear.
