Trial of Standing Bear


Availability: Available



The Trial of Standing Bear tells the moving story of one man’s struggle of self-determination in the 1879 court case Standing Bear vs. Crook. In the case, a U.S. district court declared for the first time that “an Indian is a person within the meaning of the law,” therefore entitled to protection under the U.S. Constitution. In the saga of the struggle for basic Native American rights, this decision still holds significance. Produced in 1988 Length 120 minutes
