Rewarded for his heroism is the Civil War, Lt. John Dunbar (Kevin Costner) wants to see the American frontier before its gone. He is assigned to an abandoned fort, where a Sioux tribe is his only neighbor.Overcoming the language barrier and their mutual fear and distrust, Dunbar and the proud Indians gradually becomes friends. Eventually, he falls in love with the beautiful Stands With A Fist (Mary McDonnell), a white woman raised by the tribe. He learns the culture of the Sioux, lives with them and even experiences the breathtaking excitement of a buffalo hunt, but his knowledge of the fate which will ultimately befall the tribe torments him. Finally, he is faced with a crucial decision that will cause him to examine his heart and soul before making a heroic choice that determines his destiny.What makes this film outstanding is that it lets the Lakota speak mainly for themselves, in their own language, neither in Tonto-speak suggesting an IQ below room temperature nor in English spoken backwards as in so many other distortive Hollywod films about Indians. Sure, the main character is not Indian, it is Dunbar who lets the predominantly white audience discover the Lakota through white eyes. I wonder when we will see a film which doesn't rely any more on this crutch of culture mediation. Its Lorence of Arabia on the plains. Similar to the dramaturgy of "The Man they called Horse", the Lakota seem to have waited for Dunbar to lead them to success. But without that element there wouldn't have been any room for Costner in the cast.
