Floyd Westerman Retrospective
Presented by Steve Jacobson
-- Video Activist for 25 years

Floyd Westerman, aka, Red Crow, was a great Native American and Lakota Nation leader. Early on in his life he established himself as a solid country-western musician and singer/songwriter. His recordings offer a probing analysis of European influences in Native American communities. Later in life he became an accomplished actor depicting Native Americans in movies and on television. He is probably best known for his role playing Chief Ten Bears in the feature film, Dances with Wolves. At the same time, he worked as a political activist for Native American and environmental causes worldwide. He was always on the front lines, speaking out at activist events that engaged his passion and dedication. This new documentary filmed by Steve Jacobson is a retrospective of his later life, performing and speaking in his charismatic Native American style.
