This week: The Pride and the Shame
Every night they thunder across our television screens - Red Indians: proud heathen warriors, a legend from the past. But nearly half a million American Indians still live on reservations in conditions described by President Johnson as 'enough to brine the blush of shame to our cheeks when we look at what we have done to our first citizens'. The tribes still have war dances at night - for the young men in uniform going overseas to Vietnam to fight for the American cause. But how do they live on the reservations? What is their pride? And whose is the shame?
