  2. Bright Circle explores the history of Native American Indians’ participation and achievement in athletics. The 19th century saw the founding of “Indian Schools” – boarding schools that brought Native American children together from many different tribes, most often against their will. The objective was assimilation. The motto was, “Kill the Indian, Save the Man.” In addition to the insistence on removal of tribal customs and conventions, the “Indian Schools” focused their male population on sports, particularly football. Unintentionally, these institutions produced some of the best athletes and teams of the late 19th and early 20th century.

Not only are they friends, but they are also now partners, having recently bought a fishing boat together to fulfill a long time dream of going into business for themselves. A radio announcement during a fishing excursion causes conflict, exposing religious and cultural differences.
