Tagline: “It’s time to learn. To go beyond. It’s not about Winnetou. It’s about you and us.”

Synopsis: “The same mentality that ignores the rights of indigenous people to self-expression are often those who also have stereotypes and gas light GLBTIIQ people. Women. The disabled or economically challenged, especially BIPOC, just wanting for change and equality. It’s basically saying, “My joy is more important than your dignity, your rights or even your life.”
