Starblanket: A Spirit Journey

Starblanket: A Spirit Journey

At the age of 24, Noel Starblanket was one of the youngest First Nations chiefs in North America. At the age of 29, he became Chief of all Canadian Indians when he was elected president of the National Indian Brotherhood [now referred to as The Assembly of First Nations]. Outspoken, rebelliious and sometimes outrageous, he was the subject of the 1973 National Film Board of Canada production titled simply, Starblanket. Through the universal language of image, music, and emotion, brings to light in a very personal way, the ancient teachings and the extraordinary wisdom of the First Nations people, while offering a much needed message for our time.
