The award winning CHIEFS is the true tale of the Wyoming Indian High School basketball team. For most schools, not winning a championship for seven years is a rather unremarkable statistic. But for the impoverished inhabitants of the Wind River Indian Reservation, basketball is a form of empowerment, self-expression, and access to the world outside "the rez." Winning becomes a source of empowerment, and a way to defy a century and a half of injustice.
This documentary is ostensibly about a Wyoming high school basketball team. But as the Wyoming Indian High School Chiefs are made up of Native Americans it also encompasses broader issues of race and identity, making for illuminating viewing.
