: : Rebecca,
: : Sorry about the delay in answering; War Party is a 1989 movie about the reenactment of a battle between the Blackfoot Indian Tribe and the US Calvery; the time is the "present" now adays; the "young ones" get together for this reeactment; however; one of the "white young ones" actually loads his gun to make a real battle instead of a reenactment.
: : Someone told me of this film a long time ago, in a place .....actually,
: : I saw it so long ago; it started out very interesting; with the Indian youth on the reservation, dealing with current problems, getting ready for this reenactment and thier feelings about it, etc. (This is where I thought Tantoo is the mom of one of the youths)but as the movie unfolds; what was a very interesting idea becomes a rather pathetic cowboys and Indians stuff.
: : As I rented it out of a drug store; might not be still around.
: : Jo
: : (who is very glad you are off crutches, Rebecca,
: : My hope to you for a complete recovery without cast and no pain in the toes!!!)
: Hi Jo,
: Thanks for the info. I will definitely rent it!
: Well, I had no pain in my toes, but my ankle gave me a lot of trouble. Apparently I had sprained it as well and due to the trauma it became VERY immobile...How is your ankle? ( I hope I didn't get you mixed up with somebody else....)And how are the rest of our wounded?
No, if you check out some of the gathering pictures, that's me in my moon boot. My sprained ankle is much better, finally, just the toes/heel now and then hurt; and every morning when I get up I am reminded that I definately have an ankle! Hiking was a bit of a pain; probably would have healed sooner if I hadn't done so much; but no way was I going to miss the Gathering; even if the doc said it was iffy to do it....I guess I'll just blame later troubles on LOTM!!!!!
Marcia's wrist is better; I'm assuming DAR is fully recovered from her Alice dive; Patty said something about a hurt ankle also; but she's busy with fires.
