Without Arrows

Milwaukee Film Festival

Filmed over the course of thirteen years, the meditative and intimate documentary WITHOUT ARROWS chronicles the vibrancy and struggle of a Lak葻贸ta family. Delwin Fiddler Jr., a champion grass dancer from the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, left his reservation and built a new life in Philadelphia. A decade later he abandons it all and returns home to fulfill his mother鈥檚 ambition and carry on the legacy of their thiy贸拧paye (extended family).
