Description:IF ONLY I WERE AN INDIAN... accompanies three aboriginal elders from Manitoba on a voyage to the Czech Republic as they relive their past through the native rituals and costumes adopted by their European admirers. Hesitation gives way to humour, fear gives way to friendship, and out of a common passion for the traditions of North American Indians, a collective hope for the future is born.
