The Ballad of Crowfoot (1968 | 10 min), by Willie Dunn

This short film examines the situation of Indigenous people in North America through the figure of Isapo-muxika (Crowfoot), the legendary 19th-century Siksika chief. A rapid montage of archival photos, etchings and contemporary newspaper clippings is married to the words and music of an impassioned ballad written by Mi’kmaq singer and songwriter Willie Dunn.
