Here are just a few of the accolades the film received:
"The Rundles expertly capture the oral history, the people you won’t soon forget and their past that must not be forgotten." by Movie Reviewer Linda Cook
Quad City Times
"Lost Nation: The Ioway provides a powerful and moving case study of the relationship between the early arriving Europeans and the native people. The documentary and its supporting materials can be used to explore the general themes and issues of this relationship, as well as to examine the methods of social science research...This DVD provides a potent look at the past for students of social studies and American history and has the potential to enrich a unit of study in which students conduct interviews, engage in memoir writing, or develop oral story-telling skills for language arts." Multimedia & Internet @ Schools featured review of the Lost Nation: The Ioway DVD
"...you likely already know that it's something special - a fantastically informative, beautifully constructed, and (not for nothing) thoroughly enjoyable piece of work...Yet while the film is pretty great, its DVD is absolutely outstanding. Lost Nation: The Ioway has been made with intelligence and skill, and as Kelly Rundle says on one of the movie's two commentary tracks, viewers appear responsive to it "not because it's a Native American story, but because it's a human story." Fittingly, the bonus features have been assembled with as much thought, care, and filmmaking savvy - and joy - as Lost Nation itself. (There's even something akin to a gag reel.) The extras here do exactly what DVD extras ideally should: They entertain, but they also expand your appreciation of the movie by offering so much more to appreciate."
