At the age of 24, Noel Starblanket was one of the youngest First Nations chiefs in North
America. At the age of 29, he became chief of all Canadian Indians when he was
elected president of the National Indian Brotherhood [now referred to as The Assembly
of First Nations]. Outspoken, rebellious and sometimes outrageous, he was the subject
of the 1973 National Film Board of Canada production titled simply, Starblanket. Now
three and a half decades later, he shares with humor, honesty and emotion, his own
healing journey and as he finds peace in returning to the teachings of the Elders, a
greater appreciation of life through loss, and renewed hope for the future with the
emerging Seventh Generation, his journey becomes the viewer’s as well.
Through the universal language of image, music and emotion, Starblanket: A Spirit
Journey brings to light in a very personal way, the ancient teachings and the
extraordinary wisdom of the First Nations people while offering a much-needed
message for our time.
