Indian Basketball: A Wider Circle

First Aired Friday, September 05, 1997

Indian Basketball: A Wider Circle takes a personal look at the fast-paced and most popular sport on Indian Reservations across Montana. Few talented Indian High School basketball players make it to Division I. In this program, we'll explore some of the reasons why. You'll meet Indian Basketball players from the past and the present who struggle not with scoring points but with learning to adjust to being away from the reservation. Home on the reservation is more than a place to live. It's a spiritual and cultural connection to other Indians and the land.
