Movie Info

In 1854 Utah, 13-year old Nick Wilson (Blake Heron), bored by life on the family farm with his widowed mother (Karen Allen), accepts an invitation to join a local Shoshone tribe. The Indians are anxious to have the boy among them because he fulfills the prescient dreams of one of the elders, Anuba (Patricia Van Ingen); Nick is just happy to have the adventure. He undergoes training to become a Shoshone warrior, and his ability to shoot an arrow comes in handy as a rival tribe -- led by the fearsome Pocatello (Wes Studi) -- and a posse of white men bring danger to his newly adopted family.

Gives the viewer some insight on Native American culture. That is a lot more than most westerns have to offer on this subject.

Audience Reviews for Wind River

A. Martinez is both commanding and undeerstanding to the boy he has kidnapped. The boy joins the Shoshone tribe and is taught the ways and weapons of the tribe.

A true story about Nick Wilson and his life as a boy living with the Indians. The film was done with seriousness and it pulls it of well. The movie has some good moments especially when Nick Wilson is in the tribe. I enjoyed this movie and it was done well.
