Overview

Viewers might find the subject matter of More Than Bows and Arrows surprising. After all, the achievements of Native Americans have been often overlooked in popular culture. These original citizens did much to affect the formation of the country. N. Scott Momaday narrates this look into the contributions of the Indians to North America. Irrigation systems and medical techniques are just a few of the concepts introduced by tribal groups. Architecture of the West influenced grand trends. Religion and language of Native Americans also seeped into the mainstream. From food to sports, Indian life was absorbed into contemporary society. This award-winning documentary shines a light on the wonders of a long-forgotten indigenous people. ~ Sarah Ing
