Way of the Warrior by Clyde Kusatsu( Visual )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring the warrior ethic among Native Americans, this documentary also reveals how Native communities have traditionally viewed their warriors and why, during the 20th century, Native men and women have signed up for military service at a rate three times higher than non-Indians. This documentary examines the visceral nature of war and the bravery of Native-American veterans who served in World War I, World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War--and came to grips with the difficult post-war personal and societal conditions. The program honors the endurance and sacrifice of individuals such as Mitchell Red Cloud (Ho-Chunk), a Congressional Medal of Honor recipient; Ira Hayes (Pima), one of the flag raisers on Iwo Jima; Phil Coon (Creek), a Bataan Death March survivor; and John Yahola (Creek), a member of the Red Stick Warrior Society. Their stories are examined through the prism of what it means to be "ogichidaa," one who protects and follows the way of the warrior. Dramatic historical footage, period photographs and sound effects juxtaposed with photos of veterans in more genial settings, away from combat with family and friends stateside, create portrait of not just the warrior, but the paradox of a warrior's motivations
Being Hmong means being free : a video portrait of Hmong life and culture in today's America( Visual )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the U.S. withdrew from the Viet Nam War in 1975, approximately 120,000 Hmong were driven from their homeland in Laos by communist forces and forced to re-establish their lives elsewhere. Focusing on a Hmong immigrant community in Wisconsin, this documentary offers a comprehensive look at many fundamental concepts and practices of the ancient Hmong culture -- weddings, funerals, the "ball toss," the shaman, clans and the "flower cloth" -- and relates how those traditions have framed the Hmong culture and community. Acknowledging the difficulties that have arisen from trying to follow those traditions in a new country where the language barrier, limited employment opportunities and xenophobia present everyday challenges, Being Hmong Means Being Free explores how dramatically life has changed for Hmong in the space of a generation
