Give the gift of the award-winning and critically-acclaimed Native American historical documentary Lost Nation: The Ioway!
In 1824, during the twilight of Native American dominion, two conflicted Ioway leaders met with William Clark (of Lewis and Clark) to sign a momentous treaty. White Cloud (Mahaska) saw cooperation as survival for his people, while Great Walker (Moanahonga) regretted the loss of their ancestral homeland. This pivotal moment led both men to different tragic destinies in their battle with epic change.
Lost Nation: The Ioway tells the dramatic and true story of the small tribe that once claimed the territory between the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers from Pipestone, Minnesota to St. Louis. What was a quest for survival in the past, has become a struggle to retain a unique Native American culture and language in the present.
The bonus feature-packed DVD includes the 57-minute award-winning documentary, an alternative in the nearly extinct Ioway language, known as Báxoje (bah-kho’-jay), and a 10-minute version for young children!
