Facing the Storm is the epic account of the tempestuous relationship with the iconic symbol of wild America. The American bison once dominated the plains of North America, numbering in the tens of millions. Native Plains Indians shared a sacred relationship with the species that went far beyond survival and sustenance. Then, in the 19th century they were nearly eradicated from the continent, and an entire Plains culture was forever changed. 78 minutes. No rating. Appropriate for ages 10+.
