Apr 15, 2021 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
A tale of revenge, cultural identity, and the cost of breaking from tradition.
The Only Good Indians follows four American Indian men after a disturbing event from their youth puts them in a desperate struggle for their lives. Tracked by an entity bent on revenge, these childhood friends are helpless as the culture and traditions they left behind catch up to them in a violent, vengeful way.
