Indian Relay follows three teams from different tribes as they prepare for and compete in a grueling Indian Relay season -- all hearts set on the glory and honor of winning an Indian Relay National Championship.
A mix of daring and exquisite horsemanship, Indian Relay is a sport widely enjoyed and practiced by men and women from tribal nations across the Rocky Mountain West. Each race begins with up to eight Native athletes riding a horse bareback around a track at full gallop. After one lap -- barely slowing down -- the riders leap from their speeding horses to a second set of horses. Each team's "mugger" must then catch the first horse or the team is disqualified, creating an often chaotic scene in front of the grandstands. Another top-speed lap, another daring horse change, and the teams race for the finish line, at speeds topping 40-miles-an-hour.
A documentary about a small group of French citizens - called "Savy Western" - who share a passion for everything Native American. Every weekend, they dress in Native regalia and make appearances at various village fairs alongside their countrymen in France. However, in order to fulfill their dream, they must travel to the United States and meet "real Indians." Together, they finally manage a two-week drive across the Midwest and discover that the reality of contemporary Native Americans is quite different from their portrayed envisioning. Filled with unforeseen emotion, this road movie presents great encounters on both sides.

How will we be able to navigate the path that lies before us while making sense of the path that lies behind us? In a world increasingly short on real answers, where short term fixes are preferred over long term solutions and greed is championed over compassion, its time we looked to Native wisdom to lead the way. It is time for some Injunuity.
