The film features actor Viggo Mortenson ( Lord of the Rings, Hidalgo), narration by Peter Coyote and Floyd Red Crow Westerman, with a soundtrack featuring the works of Native American Grammy-winner Bill Miller, Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen and singer/songwriter Lauren Monroe, Keith Secola, Robert Meribal, Stumpa, Peter Buffet, and Medicine Dream.
