An energetic and ambiguous film in part because it refuses to function as an outsider’s guide to Native cultures. -- University of Nebraska Press
Smoke Signals explores the powerful relationship between Thomas Builds-the-Fire and Victor Joseph, two boys growing up on the Coeur d’Alene reservation. After the death of Victor’s father, the young men embark on a road trip.
