"This is an important video as it shows the history of Native People in an affirmative way, while being highly entertaining, powerful, and full of humor and insight. The drama make the important connection that these 'ogres' are all around us and must be fought by the Sami (and all of us) if the planet is to survive. Highly recommended!" 
- Doug Moss, Publisher - E-The Environmental Magazine

 

"...the play provides a good version of Native political/cultural thought, which can be understood universally."
- Elizabeth Wetherford, Head of Film & Video Center, National Museum of the American Indian, Smithsonian Institution

 

"We applaud your project and courage in 'unearthing' some of the contemporary 'ogres' facing Northern Norway and the Sami People."
- Orlyn Kringstad, Chief Fraternal Officer - Sons of Norway
