    “I just finished watching 'Roundup' and the dialogue was mainly in English. At a critical time in preserving many native languages it would have been noteworthy for Pete Standing Alone and Narcisse Blood to speak in their native tongue Blackfoot and the documentary be with English subtitles. The language helps keep us distinct and it certainly embraces as a source of pride.” — stressor, 30 Jun 2011

    “A good film that reminds me of the racism that still exists. First Nations should be proud of their heritage and wary of foreign ideas. I hope they can avoid assimilation. Pete Standing Alone deserves admiration based on this presentation.” — Kevin, 26 Jun 2011
