Documentary Review: Black Indians: An American Story (2001)

Having lived in Eastern Utah, the story of their being Black Indians is not knew to me.  There were some among the Ute population who had mixed blood.  However, this story shows much more prevalence of this population than I was aware.  This movie also talks about racism against this population.  The Native American part of the ancestry was often just ignored because of this.  They also talk about the racism based on the color of one's skin, and the gradation of the color.  Much of the low representation is that often and individual would identify as one race or the other, based on what advantage this may be to his family.
