Awhile back I watched the movie “10Canoes”. More interesting than the movie was the special feature that discussed how the movie was made. The local people who were used in the movie had to re-learn the process of building the canoes. They had forgotten how!

I saw that one too Bob, worth watching. The same thing with the "Last of The Mohicans" movie, the Indians had to be taught how to paddle a canoe & many other things. But some of them said it was a worthwhile experience, & had rekindled an interest in their own culture.
