Testimonials for "7th Generation"         


“...This is an excellent overview of a barbaric episode in US history - the massacre of over 200 Indian women, children, infants and elders at Wounded Knee... How that and subsequent treatment of Indian youth in boarding schools led to a lot of shame... And how the current generation is working to recover their language and their pride. "To have everything, you must give it all away." Very worth watching!” ~ Top customer reviews 5.0 out of 5 stars  May 19, 2018  Amazon Prime Video

"Cinema on the Bayou Film Festival proudly presented the Louisiana Premiere of 7th GENERATION.... As we expected, our audiences were engaged and moved by this important film. Jim and his film were so well received that the film was awarded our prized Inspiration Award. Jim Warne and 7th GENERATION are indeed inspiring!” ~ Rebecca Hudsmith and Pat Mire, COTBFF

“7th Generation is an illuminating and a fascinating look at Black Elk's prophecy that healing and change is immanent - lead by today's native youth. Congratulations...  We most sincerely wish you much luck with this important film.” ~ IndieFEST Film Awards

"Jim Warne’s film honors our Tribal elders who held onto the wisdom for future generations and generates PRIDE within Indian country as well as opens minds...  A must see documentary for everyone." ~ Cline Griggs, White Mountain Apache Tribal Council

“We are excited to have such a talent like Jim Warne join us at the symposium… This amazing and powerful film is a must-see for all South Dakotans." ~ Wenday Parent-Johnson, Center for Disabilites University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine 

“The Heard Museum screened 7th Generation... the audience expressed their connections to the film and commented how the film brilliantly displayed a conversation that has been overlooked for all Americans.” ~ Marcus Monenerkit, Heard Museum Curator

“There are strong lessons to be learned from viewing the 7th Generation. Jim Warne and his colleagues present the issues and the illustrations of Native American life in past decades and present a view of a positive future...  As noted by Mr. Warne, I hope there will be a Native American President in our future.” ~ Fred R. McFarlane, Ph.D. Interwork Institute, San Diego State University

"As a French student in San Diego, I had the opportunity to meet Jim Warne and watch his movie "7th Generation"... a lot of lessons to learn how Native Americans see the future and want the best for the 7th generation. A true message of hope and peace that anyone in the world can take as an example." ~ Loïc BENEYTO, Semestre de Management Interculturel (SMI), French International Student Cohort at the American Language Institute (ALI), San Diego State University

“Jim's film “7th Generation,” shares our tribal prophecy and history from a Lakota perspective.... I am proud to see the insights that our elders shared about the future for the 7th Generation.  It is a powerful message that will educate all people of our history.”       

~ Scott Weston, President (2016-2018), Oglala Lakota Sioux Tribe


“Sometimes you come across a film which is not just a good film, but it’s a great film!  A film which moves you, informs you, makes you want to change your life.  And this is this film. Please catch `7th Generation’, it’s one of the best things I’ve ever seen.”

~ Michael Lane, Chair, Clarendon Park Cinema, Leicester, United Kingdom – Caorle Italy Film Festival Judge
