Mitakuye Oyasin (We Are All Related)

Documentary Film

In August 2014 I travelled to South Dakota, USA, with playwright, Chris Hoyle, and photographer, Duncan Elliott.

The trip was primarily for Chris to research characters for his latest play, set in 1887, when Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show came to Salford for 6 months and one hundred Sioux Warriors pitched their Tepees on the banks of the River Irwell.

While we were on the Rosebud and Pine Ridge Indian reservations we spoke to many of the residents and managed to film some of these conversations. This film is made from excerpts of those interviews.
