Dreamkeeper should prove enthralling to anyone interested in Native American myths and legends. It is telling the story of a resentful Lakota teenager who reluctantly agrees to drive his wise old grandfather from their South Dakota "rez" to an All-Nations Powwow in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Along the way, the tradition-bound elder serves as tribal "dreamkeeper" for his initially resistant grandson, who gradually realizes that his grandfather's stories are essential in preserving the fading cultures of the Lakota and the several other tribes whose folklore depends on unbroken generations of oral tradition. While some of the lavishly dramatized tales can stand alone as authentic Native American myth-making. It's an admirable attempt to introduce neglected cultures into the television mainstream.
