Description

This comedy explores the interaction of two cultural groups indigenous to Minnesota– American Indians and philanthropic foundations. Poet Gerald Vizenor’s screenplay draws on trickster myths common to many Indian tribes to create a contemporary satire which dispels many Hollywood stereotypes. The story involves trickster Harold and his scheme to obtain corporate funding for a chain of coffeehouses featuring reservation-grown “pinch bean” coffee.
