About One Dead Indian

"There are many powerful sequences in One Dead Indian that leave the viewer stunned... There is much to admire... It's about a seemingly inexplicable death and how that death can be explained by the tenor of the times." 
- John Doyle, The Globe and Mail

"Uncovers the story's heart and soul. One Dead Indian does not simply show the back-and-forth of a tense, short-lived, and politically charged event, but takes the viewer inside the complex community and family dynamic that propels the story." 
- Jennie Punter, The Globe and Mail

"A vivid recounting of the tragic events."

- Victor Dwyer, The Globe and Mail

"In a society that prizes its reputation for multicultural tolerance and inclusion, the title of CTV's latest small-screen movie offering seems shocking for its bald-faced political incorrectness. And One Dead Indian doesn't pull any punches when it comes to content, either."
- Cheryl Ubelacker, Canadian Press

"Succeeds in reminding us that a human being lost his life simply for supporting a cause he believed in... An impressive ensemble of some of Canada's finest aboriginal actors, all of whom are at the top of their craft here... The movie is well-acted, well-shot and evenly paced from start to end."
- Steve Tilley, Toronto Sun

- Eric Kohanik, CanWest News Service

- Elizabeth Yates, Brantford Expositor

"If you were lucky, you caught One Dead Indian - the made-for-television movie - last week on CTV. It was refreshing to see a film that portrayed contemporary aboriginals as real people, with valid frustrations, humour and intelligence."
- Colleen Simard, Winnipeg Free Press
