Released in 1969, this satirical short by Duke Redbird was the first animated film by an Indigenous director to be produced at the NFB.  The film pokes gentle fun at Indigenous stereotypes and challenges the idea that Indigenous youth should seek to blend in to mainstream society. Today Duke Redbird is a prominent artist and scholar.
