Neither Wolf Nor Dog

It's Back!

The Journey Museum and Learning Center is bringing back the acclaimed movie, "Neither Wolf Nor Dog" to the community!
You can catch the film at our first ever Native American Film Festival from Feb. 1-9, 2020. 

This 2016 South Dakotan Native American film is adapted from the award-winning book by Minnesota author Kent Nerburn, “Neither Wolf Nor Dog: On Forgotten Roads with an Indian Elder.”

The story is about a Lakota elder who wants to write a book about his people, so he summons a white author to help. The author gets sucked into the heart of contemporary Native American life as the elder tells him about land and property, the power of silence, and sacred ceremonies.

Witness a stunning, landmark performance from Lakota Elder and WWII veteran Dave Bald Eagle, who passed on after filming at age 97. Bald Eagle grew up in Cherry Creek, South Dakota.
