First, Michael Blake wrote a book called Dances with wolves in 1988. Then, in 1990 Kevin Costner, the famous American actor, turned the film into a huge cinema hit.


Dances with wolves
is an epic film which tells the story of a United States Army lieutenant, John J. Dunbar,  who went in seach of the American frontier in 1864 and found himself. (see webquest by Michelle Henry, J is for John Dunbar)

He eventually becomes friends with a Sioux tribe and a lonely wolf called " Socks".



The film which was both directed and produced by Kevin Costner, was released on November 9, 1990. It was nominated for 12 Oscars and won 7 Academy Awards and the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture.

Much of the dialogue is in the Lakota language with English subtitles, which was unusual for a film at the time of its release. It was shot in South Dakota and Wyoming.

Here is the Dances with Wolves trailer :




And here's my new challenge for you, how do you say "buffalo" in Lakota ?
