  • A decent exploration of ancient Native American lore, but hampered by some slow pacing.

  • Quotes (5)

    • Willis: We just want to set things right. Barry Whitecloud: Sorry, you're a few centuries too late.

    • Standing Wolf: I am not from around here. Barry Whitecloud: Where're you from? Standing Wolf: A place where a warrior does not waste his time thinking, when he can take action.

    • MacGyver: You think they followed me? Barry Whitecloud: You're the one who's been digging into the treaty. Unless, of course, they're just nostalgic to kill an Indian.

    • MacGyver: What are you doing? Barry Whitecloud: Johnson's going to be at Cook Power Plant in the morning. I'm going after him. MacGyver: Why? You'll be playing right into their hands. Barry Whitecloud: Their hands are going to get bloody. MacGyver: Can't you see the only way to beat them is to get at the truth? Barry Whitecloud: There's truth in revenge.

    • MacGyver: This is a dream, right? Standing Wolf: I don't think so. (pinches MacGyver, MacGyver doesn't react) Didn't that hurt? Hey, maybe it is a dream.
