I also wanted to say the “silver lining “ is Charlie came to the realization that he couldn’t go back and he couldn’t find or survive by himself, and finally said he would teach the young the old ways. Giving them their foundation back. It was so powerful to watch the wisdom teaching and the dancing was out of this world!! I loved the positive growth and message for all of us.

It was sad to see how the land was taken and the people given nothing and treated less than human. No one listens to Charlie,he is saying very profound truth,because it’s a reflection of themselves they can’t see it. The same thing happened here and still happens. It’s good to see my face,so I can really see theirs.
