"Take complex issues like Native identity, politics and racism, then wrap them up with one-liners, guffaws and comedic performances. The result: Redskins, Tricksters and Puppy Stew, a road trip through the world of Native humour. Meet Don Kelly, one of Canada's hottest young stand-up comics who skewers stereotypes of the "apathetic Indian"; Tom King, creator and host of CBC-Radio's Dead Dog Cafe; Don Burnstick, whose edgy humour comes from years of street life; Herbie Barnes, actor and co-founder of a sketch comedy troupe; and Sharon Shorty and Jackie Bear, a White-horse duo who portray Sarah and Susie--two elderly Native ladies who discuss their love of bingo and Kentucky Fried Chicken. This film hilariously overturns the conventional notion of the "stoic Indian" and shines a light on an overlooked element of First Nations culture--humour and its healing powers."--Container.
