TESTIMONIALS...                                    PRESS... WSD News

"I had the privilege of listening to Jim Warne speak at a conference. His efforts to lift up his people and honor and preserve his heritage are inspiring and admirable. This film was presented as a component of his talk. I was deeply moved..."

Amazon Prime Video Customer Review, 5-Star "Watch this Film!" for "7th Generation", A Documentary Film

“Jim is a young man of which we are extremely proud. We are proud of his personal achievement, but even more proud of the fact that he positively effects the lives of the people he touches. His message is both worthy and effective.” 

Don Bocchi, Arizona State University Senior Associate Athletic Director, Tempe AZ

“It was important for Native youth in attendance to see the accomplishments of Native athletes such as Jim Warne, Billy Mills, Reyneldi Becenti and David Powless.  They are true role models.  They proved you can be successful outside of a particular sport by applying the discipline and leadership skills you learn as an athlete.”

Mary Kim Titla, UNITY, Inc. and former Arizona Congressional Candidate at Super Bowl Week Youth Event, Scottsdale, AZ 

“Jim Warne is a true role model; not only for our Native American youth, but for all those who have the privilege of knowing him.  Jim’s motivational speeches and historic films on Native identity are life changing.” 

Dr. Anthony Fairbanks Superintendent Oglala Lakota County School District 65-1
