Examining Native American identity in the 1990s, Shelley Niro (Mohawk) combines performance art, melodrama, "whodunit" mystery, musical numbers, and theatrics to create an experimental comedy/thriller set on the Grand Pine Indian Reservation, or "Reservation X." The film features an all-Native American cast and interweaves several narratives that challenge cultural, ethnic, and sexual identities -- the rivalry between two bars called the Smokin' Moccasin and the Inukshuk Cafe; the story of Zachary John, powwow clothing thief and closeted drag queen; and the adventures of investigator Honey Moccasin. Niro masterfully meshes styles in this surreal exploration of modern Native American experience. Awarded Best Feature and Director for the Red Earth Native American Film and Video Fest, and Best Experimental Film at the Dreamspeakers Film and Video Festival.
