Tonight,   13   of   November   in   Western   Heritage   Center was    presentation    of    documentary    movie    filmed    by Cinnamon   Spear.   Movie   is   run   for   up   to   32   min.   It   filmed on   small   camera.   But   it   is   very   professional   and   touch audience deep. Movie   about   boys   from   reservation   who   play   basketball. The   most   popular   question   from   people   who   watched   it: “And     what     about     girls     player?!”.     “It     seems     boys basketball   more   popular   there.   There   is   girls   team.   But when   for   example      boys   have   game   in   the   another   city and   girls   have   it   right   at   home,   how   ever   boys   get   more supporters   going   with   them   then   girls   these   who   stayed in     town     and     support     them.     I     can’t     explain     that phenomenon. Things   just   work   like   that”,   -   Cinnamon   explains.   She   thought   that   work   on   movie   will give   her   answer   on   that   question   but   it   is   not.   She   also   worried   about   the   fate   of   the   boys. After   all,   from   the   whole   team,   only one   went   to   college. At   one   time   they   had   everything:   respect,   attention. And   suddenly   they   are   left   with   nothing.   Many   can   not stand   the   contrast   and   get   bad   habits.   Some   of   them   get   addicted   to   drugs   or   end   up   on   the   streets.   It   sad   but   Cinnamon   and her   like-minded   try   to   change   situation.   One   of   the   very   sweet   things   she   done   is   that   she   has   created   the   same-looked   jackets for whole teem. Boys are very proud of their jackets, it gives them feeling that they are professional. Nota   Bene!   Cinnamon   Spear   was   raised   in   a   large   family   on   the   Northern   Cheyenne   Reservation.   She   is   a   graduate   of Dartmouth   and   as   such   is,   so   far,   the   only   graduate   of   Lame   Deer   High   School   to   attend   college   in   the   Ivy   League   or   to   attend graduate school. On    the    Northern    Cheyenne Indian                   Reservation, basketball    is    more    than    a game.    It    is    a    lifestyle.    This film    explores    the    interesting and   serious   dynamic   between high    school    basketball    and warriorism   for   the   young   men in    the    community    of    Lame Deer,    Montana.    Created    by Cinnamon     Spear,     Pride     & Basketball   is   the   first   film   of its      kind.      Told      from      the perspective         of         current players,     past     greats,     and community   members,   it   is   the only basketball documentary produced and directed by a filmmaker born to the reservation.
