This documentary profiles Comanche political and social activist LaDonna Harris. President Lyndon Johnson tapped her to educate the executive and legislative branches on the unique role of American Indian tribes and their relationship to the U.S. government. The course, called “Indian 101,” was taught to members of Congress and other agencies for more than 35 years. In addition to her work in civil rights, world peace, the environment and women’s rights, Harris is best known for introducing landmark legislation.
