A spiritual journey into the enigmatic life and mind of the Native America’s most celebrated author, whose Pulitzer Prize-winning The House Made of Dawn led to the Native American Renaissance. Using a fresh approach to biographical storytelling, indigenous filmmaker Jeffrey Palmer visually captures Momaday’s creative core in this American Masters film through original animation, historical photos and aerial landscapes, and interviews with Robert Redford, Jeff Bridges, Beau Bridges, James Earl Jones, and Joy Harjo.
