Movie Info

"Bury the Hatchet" features three Mardi Gras Indian chiefs in a dynamic portrait of the unique and endangered culture of New Orleans they represent -- as bearers of tradition, as artists and as musicians. Descendents of runaway slaves given harbor by the Native Americans in the bayous of Louisiana, these practitioners of a hundreds-years-old tradition sew elaborate costumes resembling those of the Indians, parading through the streets of the city on Mardi Gras day while singing traditional songs that contribute another layer to New Orleans' already rich musical vernacular. Following these men, we get to experience the vulnerability of the black community in New Orleans.

A lovely and lyrical homage to a unique tradition in an already unique city, and one of the best and most affecting A-to-Z accountings of what that tradition truly means. I've seen the film three times. I've cried three times.
