Buffalo Dreams (2005) Movie Script

[Horn Blares]
We're Moving Somewhere Beyond
Cell Phone Service.
Doesn't That Bother You?
Ha Ha.
It Is So Beautiful.
What Is? The Scrub?
Look At All
The Blue Sky. Ohh!
[Radio Static]
Woman On Radio:
Domino Here At Ktqt 91.8...
You Give Us 2 Minutes
And We'll Give You
The Turquoise Trail...
Ha Ha!
In Our Top Story,
To Our Bison Moms.
There Are 7 Newborn Calves
On The Dine Bikeyah
Buffalo Preserve.
She's Kidding,
Now When I Was
An Army Brat,
I Relocated
To Weird Islands
In The Middle Of Nowhere.
At Least Here
They Speak English.
What Did He Say?
Ha Ha Ha!
We Have Beef Jerky,
Buffalo Jerky,
Moose Jerky.
We Have Aloe Gel,
Aloe Shampoo,
Aloe Conditioner...
Buckwheat Hulls,
Birch Cones, Chickweed,
Linden Leaf,
Wild Turkey Jerky,
Ah, And My Favorite,
Rabbit Jerky.
[Speaks Navajo]
Welcome To Town.
Thank You.
It's Nice To Be Here.
Try Some Of Our Fry Bread.
Oh, That's Ok.
How About
Some Beef Jerky?
No, Thanks.
Do You Have Batteries?
Um, That's Ok.
We'll Get Some Later
If We Need Them.
All Right.
Look At The View
All Around.
Don't Freak Out.
It's A Little Sloppy.
But I Think You're
Gonna Love This.
Where Is It?
Laundry Room.
Uh, Other Way.
And Don't Get
Too Excited.
Take A Left.
It's Weak, But It's Wheels.
Not In The House.
You Got Him A Bike?
Having His Bike Stolen
And Relocating
For My Work Again,
Punishment Enough.
Working With You At The Lab
Will Be Good For Him.
Give Him A Chance To See
What He Can Do.
You Like It? Hmm?
And It's 3-Time Champion
Josh Townsend
Going For The Record.
He's Coming From Behind.
He's About
To Take The Lead.
Wait. There She Is--
The Competition.
Watch The Lady
With The Straw Bag.
She's Crafty, She Fakes,
But Townsend Doesn't Flinch.
She's Changing Strategies.
Josh Puts In The Power,
Steps Into Gear, And Pass--
The Crowd Goes Wild!
She Is History.
But This Race
Is Not Over Yet.
It's Just Begun.
Note Their
Fierce Concentration
As They Plot
To Destroy Me.
But Wait Till They See This.
Oh, Yeah. Be Afraid.
Be Very Afraid.
Man: You Got To Be
Kidding Me.
Wasn't Me.
It's Beautiful, Isn't It?
You're Gonna
Miss It, Josh!
I Know!
Mother: Josh? Uhh!
Who Left Luggage
In The Middle
Of The Floor?
Where's The Flashlight?
I Got It.
You Got Batteries?
Father: Ohh.
[Rooster Crows]
[Door Opens]
[Speaking Navajo]
May There Be Beauty
In Front Of Me.
May There Be Beauty
Behind Me.
May There Be Beauty
To My Left.
May There Be Beauty
To My Right.
May There Be Beauty
All Around Me.
[Both Speaking Navajo]
There's No Riding Here.
[Car Door Closes]
Why Not?
You Can't Ride Off Trail.
You're Tearing Up
The Grasslands.
I Don't See Any Grass.
No Dirt Heads Allowed.
What's A Dirt Head?
A Mountain Biker
Who Rides
Where He's Not Allowed.
What Do They Call You?
What's Going On?
I Was Just Telling
This Dirt Rag
To Get Lost.
Who You Calling
Welcome. I'm Moon
And This Is Scout,
Of Abuela Rose Blackhorse,
Because Of A Dream
Her Mother Had
When She Gave Birth.
And This
Is Thomas Blackhorse,
Grandson Of John Blackhorse,
A Navajo Elder Who Came
From The Near Water Clan
On His Mother's Side,
Born Of The Edgewater Clan
On His Father's Side.
I'm Josh.
I'm Not Interested.
Can We Do This Now?
Yeah. Let's Bring Him In.
You Think
He's Friendly?
Can't Always Tell.
Bom, Bom
Lean On Me
When You're
Not Strong
And I'll Be Your Friend
I'll Be Your Friend
I'll Help You
Carry On
For It Won't Be Long
It Won't Be Long Now
Till I'm Gonna Need
Somebody To Lean On
We Tried
Every Song We Knew,
But This Is The Only One
That Worked.
Father: My Son's
First Day Of Work.
Domino: Good Monday...
[Speaks Navajo]
We're Caught Here
In A Buffalo Dispute
Between My Guest, Veterinarian
Seth Touch By Lightning,
And Our Caller, Jean.
So, Jean, Want To Tell
Us Why You're So Mad?
Jean: Yeah. You're Not
Gonna Believe This.
The Buffalo Charged
My Truck.
Domino: All Right.
Call Us
With Your Thoughts
On Bison.
Friend Or Fender Bender?
But First, Here Goes
The Weather Report.
There's A High Pressure
Moving In...
Adios, Amigo.
Yeah, Just Keep On
Walking, Man.
Father: Doesn't
All This Blue Sky
Make You
Just Want To Send Up
A Robotic Exploratory
Just To Find Out What
It's Really All About?
You Could Get
Every Channel
If You Have
One Of Those.
This Is Very Exciting.
How Can You Tell?
Some Of Our
Greatest Thinkers
Are Right Here
In This Facility.
To New Mexico
Research Center.
Your I.D. Badge.
How You Doing, Virgil?
That's My Boy.
Virgil, I Want You
To Show Josh
Exactly What To Do.
All Right? Gotta Go.
Call You Later.
All Right.
And This Area's
For Our Databases
Of Abstracts
And Technical Reports,
Citations And Documentation,
And Texts
Of Technical Reports,
And Archives And
Distribution Systems.
Cool, Huh?
Dead Man Walking.
And Here's Where
You'll Be Working.
Copy What's On The Cart.
[Hip-Hop Music Playing]
We Lose
Our Power A Lot, Too.
But We Always
Get It Back.
I'm Talking
About The Electricity.
Of Course.
We Have Dried Corn,
Dried Corn Soup,
Dried Corn Stew,
And Dried Corn
With Squash.
Well, I Guess I Should
Have Some Of Each.
All Right.
Is This A New Cause?
I'm Not Familiar With It.
For Centuries,
Our Northern
Brothers And Sisters
Have Honored
The Buffalo,
Who Provided Them
With Food,
Shelter, Clothing.
Now We're Partnering
With Them
To Restore The Herds And--
We Have Buffalo,
And We Need Teenagers
Like Your Son
To Help Us Out.
I'm Sorry. I Wish
I Knew Sign Language.
My Granddaughter Scout
Is Sure
Your Son
Would Enjoy Working
With The Herd
Much More Than The Lab.
[Hip-Hop Music Playing]
So I'll Make
The Announcement,
Then I'll Go Into
A Short Interview,
And Open Up
Into Q. And A. Ok?
We've Got Kyle
And His Wrecking Crew Here.
These Boys Want To Test
Your Bravery
On Single Track,
And Advanced Trail Riding.
So Ask Yourself,
Fellow Heartbreaking
Can You Fly?
Friday At Red Rocks.
Be There.
Yeah. Say Something
Like That.
So, Like,
Are We On The Air?
Hey, Grandpa.
I'll Be Graduating
In A Couple Years,
And I Need A Real Job,
A Money Job.
I Could Teach You
To Be The Next Survivor.
Ha Ha.
I'm Just Saying--
Oh, Look. Ah.
Monardella Odoratissima.
That's Mountain Pennyroyal.
It's Good For Food Seasoning
And Deodorant.
You Know, You Can Cure Yourself
And Your Herd Of Anything
If You Know Nature.
You Can't Get
Scout's Voice Back.
Your Work's Here,
Restoring The Buffalo
And Taking Care
Of Your Community.
I Know, But--
The Tree Has To Be
Rooted In The Ground
Before It Can Grow.
How Can You Stand
The Sweat Lodge
In The Summer?
You Don't Even Have
A Ceremony Today.
Certainly A Place
Your Grandma Can't Get At Me.
[Both Laugh]
Hey, What's Up?
Well, My Editor
Wants Photographs
Of My Recipes
For His Web Site
To Go With My Book.
Hey! How Was Work?
Cruel And Unusual.
Well, I Thought You
Found It Very Creative.
I'm Stuck In A Tiny Room,
Alone, With No Windows.
I Think I Like Page 19
Of The Zigna Space Report
The Best.
This...Oh, Yeah.
This Was My Favorite.
I Only Hope The 37
Of My New Colleagues
Will Find My Son
As Photogenic As We Do.
How Did That Get There?
You Know,
It Was Not Easy
Getting You This Job.
Making Copies?
It's Great Exposure.
To Radioactivity.
I Spoke To A Nice
Navajo Today.
They Need Help
At The Dine Bikeyah
Buffalo Preserve
The Dine Bikeyah
Buffalo Preserve.
Look Outside.
Oh, No. I Met The Guy
Who Works There
And He Was A Jerk.
You Could Ride
Your Bike.
Look Who It Is.
Is This
Supposed To Be A Joke?
A Dirt Head
To Work With Us?
What'd She Say?
You're Gonna Tear
Your Hands Up.
Try These.
Appreciate It.
So, Don't Do
Much Work, Huh?
I Had A Job At The Research
Center For, Like, A Minute.
You Gave Up A Job There
To Be Here?
You're Nuts.
I'd Rather Be
Riding My Bike Outside,
This Isn't Free.
I Have To Work Here.
Come On, Let's Go!
Ha Ha!
Very Funny!
What Do You Guys Do
For An Encore?
Dude, It's Safe.
Thomas: Buckle Up.
This Is A Fence Pull.
Put The Wire Through Here...
Josh: What's
The Big Deal?
Well, We Don't Want
Any Buffalo
Running Around Town.
What Are They,
Strictly Vegans, Dude.
But You Don't Want
To Stress Them.
I Mean, I've Seen Them
Toss A Man
And His Burmese
Mountain Dog
Way Across The Field.
I Mean, It Was Gnarly.
What Do You Guys Do
With The Buffalo?
I Mean, You Don't Eat Them,
You Don't Wear Them.
They Don't Make
Good Pets.
It's A Native Thing.
So...Where Do You Guys
Go Around Here?
The Caves Are Pretty Cool,
And The Community Center
Has A New Pool.
Not What I Meant.
Go Anywhere
You Want.
I'll Be Right Back.
Just Call On Me, Brother
I Need A Hand
Somethin', Somethin'
Please Be Nice, Mr. Buffalo.
Don't Get Mad.
I Need Someone
To Lean On
That's Easy.
What Are You Singing?
I Wasn't Singing.
Yeah, You Were.
It Wasn't Me.
You Guys
Aren't Supposed To
Be Riding Here.
What, Are You Protecting
Some Endangered Toad
Or Lizard
Or Scrub Brush Maybe?
This Is Restricted
Tribal Land
For The Buffalo.
Come On.
They Get 11 Million Acres,
And We Can't Ride
On A Few?
You Guys Can Ride
On The Fire Roads
And The Trails.
But There Are
These Moon Rocks
In The North End Here.
You Go Right Over The Boulders
And You Catch Some Big Air.
Really Sick Descent.
Check It Out.
Moon: Josh!
Where'd You Go, Dude?
Over Here.
Thought Maybe The Bulls
Got You Cornered.
I See They Did.
Tell Your Friends
To Share.
Boys: Let's Go!
Come On!
See Ya!
Watch Out...
We Should Get Going.
I'll Ride Back.
We Got Some Weather
Coming In.
Not A Problem For Me.
Suit Yourself.
You Sure?
It Could Rain.
You Heard
What He Said.
Let's Get Going.
[Engine Starts]
[Knock On Door]
Father: Are You Ok
In There?
Josh: Let's Burn It.
We Can't Do That.
Why Not?
Because We Want
To Preserve, Not Destroy
Our Dinetah, Our Land
That Was Given To Us
By The Ancient
Holy Ones Who Came
From The Sacred
4 Mountains.
Moon, You're Danish.
Maybe In This Life.
Ok. Ready? 3, 2--
Ha Ha!
Nobody Lifts On One.
You Count Up To 3.
No. It's 3, 2, 1, Go.
Like A Space Launch.
They Count Down.
But People Count Up.
Not Today.
3, 2, 1.
I Could Use A Little O2
Right About Now.
Put A Fork In Me,
I'm Done.
Not Yet.
And This, This Is
Why We're Here.
That's Cool.
Don't Get
Too Attached.
It's Mine.
Just Bought It.
Sweet Ride.
Lighter, Stronger,
And A Whole Lot
Come Out And Ride.
You're Gonna Turn
Into A Stiff
Working On The Res.
It's Not That Bad.
Taking Orders
From Chili-Pickers
All Summer?
Get Real!
Grab A Bike
And Come Out
And Ride With Us.
I Mean, They're Not
That Expensive.
So Do You Have A Or A Club Or What?
Just Some Thrashers
Like Us.
Enduro Riding,
Free-Ride Dropping.
What Else
Could You Want?
Sounds Cool.
Hey, Friday,
We're At Red Rocks.
See You There?
I Think It's Time
For One Of My Famous
[Indistinct Chatter]
Look At This.
This Is Beautiful.
[Speaks Navajo]
What Are These?
These Are My Dried
Blue Corn Cheese Ball
With Lamb Kebobs.
You Must Be A Real Chef.
Uh, More Of A Culinary
Oh. This Is
Thomas Blackhorse.
Hello, Thomas Blackhorse.
What Have You
Got There?
Who Knows?
My Grandson Doesn't
Speak Navajo.
He Doesn't Eat
Navajo Food.
He Only Eats Food
That Comes Out Of A Box
Or In A Bag.
You Must Be Dr. T.
Welcome. I'm Moon.
That's A Stellar Name.
Ha Ha!
Uh, Which One
Are You Named For?
Io, Europa, Or Titan?
Titan, For Sure.
Oh, Good. Ha Ha!
You Can Never See
This Many Stars
In The City.
It's Too Bright.
This Place Is So...
Hot, Quiet, Boring?
Nothing Ever Happens Here.
Abuela Rose Isn't
Letting You Go Anywhere.
Is That Your Mother?
My Grandmother.
She's Such A Navajo.
She Wants Me
To Eat And Speak
And Live Navajo.
My Father's
Such A Scientist.
He'd Love For Me To Work
In A Lab All My Life.
John: My Grandson And Your Son
Will Become Good Friends
Because You And I
Have A Lot In Common.
You Work
At The Research Center?
Oh. Oh, I'm An
Astrophysicist There.
We Have The Same Mission.
We Do?
Well...I've Actually
Begun To Shift My Focus
To The Laws And Origins
Of The Universe
The Evolutionary
Process There
So We Can
More Effectively, Um...
Protect Our Atmosphere
And Our Planet, Well,
You Know, Our World.
Yeah, Me Too.
The Dine,
The People That Is,
We Learn From The Sky.
We Tell Stories
Of Creation.
We Explore
And Protect The Earth
Just Like You.
[Pop Music Plays]
[Mouthing Words Silently]
...Here We Go
Here We Go...
She Can Hear Fine.
She Just Doesn't Talk.
Has She Always
Been This Way?
Not Always.
I Think Your Parents
Are Leaving.
Ok. Thanks...
For Dinner
And Everything.
Not A Problem.
Here We Are,
What You Say
Here We Are,
What You Say
Here We Are...
Well, I Met A Boy
Named Moon,
A Girl Named Domino,
And A Medicine Man
Who Says That The Navajo
And Scientists Are
Like Blood Brothers.
Ah, The Sign
Of A Great Party.
Why Don't You Take Him Out
And Show Him A Good Time?
That New Boy.
His Type Doesn't
Stick Around.
Then I Guess You Don't
Have Much Time.
You Can't Tell Anyone
About This Place.
I Mean It.
And I'm Not Kidding.
Don't Worry.
I Don't Know Anyone.
And I Have No Idea
Where I Am.
Just Track The Trees
To Water.
If You See A Pinyon
Or Juniper,
You Know There's No Water.
Ha Ha Ha!
You Can Do It!
It's A Risk Management Thing.
What Did She Say?
Lift Your Arms,
Open Your Heart,
And Jump.
You Know,
You Don't Have To Do It
If You Don't Want To.
Don't Sweat It, Bro.
Ha Ha Ha!
So Why Is This Place
Such A Secret?
'Cause Way Back When,
Boys Came Here
To Learn How To Be Men.
They Learned How To Hunt
And Respect Animals.
Your Ancients Were
Probably Vikings.
So Why Do You Care
So Much About Navajo?
'Cause I Like That
They Had To Go Through Stuff.
The Only Thing We Go
Through Is School.
They Had To Go For Days
Without Water
And They'd Suck On Pebbles
Just To Survive.
Did They Have Visions?
I Really Want
To Have A Vision.
Of What?
I Don't Know Yet.
It Has To Come To Me First.
What You See Is
What There Is.
I Don't Believe
In That Stuff.
I Believe In Everything.
The Navajo Have
A Lot Of Stories.
Whenever They Don't
Understand Something,
Or Why Nature Happens,
They Find An Animal
Or A Story To Explain It.
You Don't Really Care
About All This Navajo
Stuff, Do You?
Then Why Do You
Get So Mad At Kyle
And Those Guys?
It's My Job.
You Are Fried Chicken.
It's An Aloe Leaf.
I've Never Seen It
Outside The Bottle Before.
[Guitar Playing]
Hey, Where Have
You Been?
Um, You Know,
Hiking Up Mountains,
Jumping Off Cliffs,
Diving Into Waterfalls.
The Usual.
Why Are You All Shiny?
It's Aloe
For My Sunburn.
Who Are You And What Have
You Done With My Son?
You Know,
I Really Need A New Bike.
Shh, Darling.
Don't Ruin The Moment.
In The Back.
I'm Going To The--
Red Rocks.
Red Rocks.
[Bikers Laughing]
Hey, You Made It.
Thanks For The Ride.
It Isn't A Restricted Area,
Is It?
And It's Not Sacred?
You're All Right.
Be Careful.
Be Smart.
Boy: Whoo-Hoo!
This Course Eats
Bikes, Man.
You Sure You Can
Race On That?
Thanks For Caring.
Boy: Go!
Second Boy:
Look Out!
Hey, Watch Out!
Boy: Whoa!
Second Boy: Yeah!
Boy: Stop!
That's Gotta Hurt.
[Riders Laughing]
Boy: Pretty Bike, Man!
Second Boy: Eat My Dust!
Guess We'll Never Know
Who's Better.
We'll Find Out.
It's Too Hot To Eat.
Let's Swim.
Let's Go
To The Community Pool.
No, There's
Too Many Locals.
Strong Start, Dude.
Too Bad About
The Ol' Blow Out.
Yeah, I Bet
That Thing Handles Great
On A Paper Route.
I'm Gone.
Don't Try This At Home.
You Know, That Probably
Wouldn't Have Happened
If You Would Have Had
A Bike Like Mine.
Yeah, It's Really Cool.
Cheating Death
One More Time, Right?
Boy: Man, Did You See The Way
That Loser Crashed?
Kyle: All Right, Later!
[Engine Starts]
I Know A Great Place
To Swim.
Oh, Yeah?
Take A Left.
Kyle: Here We Go.
Watch This.
Right On!
[Whooping And Laughing]
Oh, Yeah!
Here We Go!
Boy: Oh, Yes!
[Laughing And Howling]
It's This Way.
Hey, I Think
I Hear It.
Boy: Oh, Man!
Ha Ha Ha!
Boy: Ha Ha Ha!
Kyle: Whoo!
It's Good!
Shock And Awe.
Ha Ha Ha!
Come On, Lady!
I've Done It Before.
Don't Be Weak!
[Laughing Together]
Oh, Yeah!
You Could Have Hurt Me!
It Looked Like
You Needed Help.
There He Is.
Just Call On Me,
When You Need A Hand
We All Need Somebody
To Lean On
I Just Might
Have A Problem
That You'd Understand
We All Need Somebody
To Lean On
Lean On Me
When You're Not Strong
And I'll Be Your Friend
I'll Help You Carry On
It Won't Be Long
Till I'm Gonna Need
Somebody To Lean On
Man: Good Job, Thomas!
[Crowd Chattering]
Woman: Good Job, Thomas.
Get Out Of Here!
What Are You Doing?!
Adding To
The Natural Beauty.
This Isn't Your Land!
Says Who?
The Navajo.
Give Me A Break.
This Is A Sacred Place.
What Are You, Afraid Of
A Couple Tortilla Makers?
No, I'm Not Afraid.
I'm Just Saying--
Stop Worrying So Much.
We Gotta Get Out Of Here.
Right Now, I Mean It.
Who Made You Chief?
[Horse Whinnies]
[Birds Chirping]
Hey, Hey, Hey.
Let Him Sleep.
But I Thought
He Had To Go To Work.
He Said
He Wasn't Feeling Well.
Come On.
All Right.
[Door Closes]
He's Not Coming.
The Guy's A Tourist.
Ha Ha!
It's Way Too Hot.
I Want To Be Done Now.
We Have To Fix A Fence
In The North Corner
Where The Dirt Heads
Rode Over It.
And Then, Let's Go
For A Swim.
All Right.
Moon: This Is Wrong, Man.
All The Places In The World,
And He Brings Them Here.
Who Do You Think?
You Don't Know It Was Him.
Well, Who Else
Would It Be?
Spirits Of The 4 Winds Make
The Buffalo Trample
Their Bikes And Trucks.
Let The Wild Animals Stomp Them
Into Road Kill--Wait!
Don't Ask The Spirits
For That.
Thomas: No.
Ask "Where's Josh?"
[Knocks On Door]
[Doorbell Rings]
You Haven't Eaten
Anything All Day.
I'm Not Hungry.
You Look Hungry.
Taste My Corn
Chipotle Popovers.
Corn Is The Symbol
Of Life, You Know.
Josh, There's Someone Here
To See You.
What's Up?
You Know.
You And Your Friends
Trashed Shining Steps.
It Wasn't Me.
Then How'd Those Guys
Know About It?
They Tagged The Place!
I Didn't Tag Anything.
But You Were There.
I Tried To Stop Them.
You Know What They're Like.
They Didn't
Even Listen To Me.
That Is So Weak.
But It's True.
We Told You Not To Tell
Anyone About The Place,
And Then You Show
Those Jerks?
I'm Telling You,
I Tried To Stop Them.
I Assure You,
This Will Be Taken Care Of.
We Are Very Sorry.
The Boys Need To Find
A Balance With Nature
To Live In Hojo.
What's That?
You Don't Even
Want To Know.
Thank You.
[Crickets Chirping]
John: There Comes A Time
When You Must Go
Into The Wilderness Alone
To Discover
Your True Nature.
The Time Spent Alone
Will Help You Find
Your Ground
And Determine Your Place
In The World.
Dim Sum.
Embrace The Dreams
And The Animals
That May Visit You.
They Will Reveal
Your Strengths, Wounds,
And Life's Purpose.
Josh: Bye, Mom.
Bye, Dad.
Bye-Bye, Baby.
See You Tomorrow.
Josh: Bye.
I'm Leaving Now.
Let Him Go.
The Navajo Belief Is Based
On A Harmonious Relationship
Between Our People
And Mother Earth.
When You're Out Of Balance,
You Feel It.
Been A Lot
Of Storms Lately.
You Must Be Clear
In Your Heart
As To What You Seek
For Yourself,
For Your People,
For The People
Of The World.
Sunrise Is A Time To Pray.
Sunrise Is
A Time To Sleep.
It's A Good Thing
You're Going.
It's A Long Time.
I'm Gonna Need That Stuff.
If My Blood Sugar Drops,
I Get Dizzy.
I Get Cold And Hungry
And Tired.
You Can't Take Dim Sum.
Look After One Another.
John: Go To A Place
Where You Can Bring Forth
What You Are
And The Way You Might Be.
Is That A Cave
Up There?
No. It's A Hole
In The Rock.
Just Like Home.
We Have Geological Formations,
Too, You Know.
Ancient Sublevel
Parking Lots
And Subways
With Great Acoustics.
You Must've Climbed Up
Those A Million Times, Huh?
Not A Million.
Well, Not A Million,
But I Mean A Lot.
Isn't It A Part
Of Your Culture
And Stuff?
No What?
No, I Didn't
Come Here A Lot.
I Don't Sit Around Caves
Passing Peace Pipes.
So What Is Hojo?
Like A Vision Quest?
Navajo Don't Do
Vision Quests.
I'm Gonna Go Cool Off.
[Frog Ribbits]
He Didn't Find
My Candy Bars.
If He Didn't Want You
To Have Them,
You Wouldn't Find Them
In Your Bag.
Go For It.
So This Looks Like
A Good Camp Site, Right?
Look At The Tracks.
Animals Come Here
At Night To Water.
What Kind Of Animals
Are We Talking About?
They're Small.
I Could Take One
If I Had To.
They're Shy And
They Stay Away From People.
A Bobcat And A Cougar?
That's Harsh.
Doesn't Look Like Rain.
Does It?
Where Are You Going?
Up River.
I'm Coming With You.
That's Your Problem.
Stop Being A Follower.
I'm Not A Follower.
Yeah, Right.
You Led Those Guys
To Shining Steps.
I Said I Was Sorry.
It Doesn't Mean Anything
If You Don't Understand
What You Did
Was Messed Up.
What Was I
Supposed To Do?
You're Supposed
To Stick Up For Us.
And Say What?
Leave, Please?
Something Like That.
I'm Sorry
I Couldn't Stop Them.
We Trusted You,
And You Didn't Keep
Our Secret
Because You Think
It's More Important
To Hang Out
With Those Guys.
I Don't Know Why.
They're Jerks.
I Said I Was Sorry.
I'm Going Up River.
You Go Down.
We'll Meet Back Here
Tomorrow Morning At 9:00.
If You're Not Here,
I'm Leaving.
You Just Be Here.
John: Be Aware Of Things
Within You.
Your Anger And Your Fear
Can Help You.
Ugh! Ugh!
John: Make A Circle
Around You
To Connect You
With All Things.
Come On.
Come On.
Come On.
[Twig Snaps]
[Coyotes Howling]
[Wind Gusts]
John: The Day Will Come
When People Will Ask Us
To Teach Them
How To Care For The Earth.
When That Day Comes,
We Will Be Ready.
[Hawk Screeches]
Thomas Blackhorse,
You Cannot Leave.
Our People Are Hungry.
You Must Bring The Herd
Back To Our People,
And You Will Bring
To Our People Health.
Not My Problem.
But It Is!
No Matter Where You Travel,
This Land Is Part Of You.
It Made You
Who You Are
And Who You Will Become.
You Must Go Or--
Or What?
You Talk To Him.
You Can Do It,
You Know.
Why Are You Out Here
All Alone?
You Will Never Be Forgotten.
We Will Help Each Other.
Can I Have Fries With That?
Do You Deliver?
[Wind Whistling]
Ok. That's It.
This Place Is Way
Too Whack For Me.
I Gotta Go Home.
[Dirt Crumbles]
[Wind Whistling]
I--I'm From The City.
I Take Trains.
I Can't Fly
Without 2 Engines
And A Fuselage.
You Never Tried.
We All Have Bird In Us.
Some More Than Others.
What Kind Of Bird Spirit
Are You Going To Be?
What Are My Choices?
Ravens, Blue Jays,
My Family, The Hawks.
Mighty, Fierce,
And Very Good-Looking.
And There Is Eagle,
Mighty Messenger
Between Up There
And Down There,
A True Leader.
So, What Bird Spirit
Are You?
Get Back To Me
When You Find Out.
[Dirt Crumbling]
Nothing Broken?
The Eagle Has Landed.
[Wind Whistling]
[Breathing Heavily]
The Wind's Bringing
In The Storm!
We Can Make It
To The Cave!
That's Where
I's Going!
For Such An Empty Place,
It Sure Is Busy.
[Chuckles] People
Really Eat That Stuff?
It Comes In Handy.
If You Get
A Toothache,
Chew On
An Echinacea Root.
My Grandfather Has
A Remedy For Everything.
I Had The Weirdest Dream.
About What?
This Talking Bird.
And Then I Flew,
Like I Was An Eagle
Or Something.
In Your Dreams.
The Navajo
Love The Eagles.
They Believe They Carry
Their Hope And Dreams
To The Spirits.
I Dreamt About Buffalo.
You Gotta Get Out More.
They're Invading
Your Brain.
I Was A Hunter.
It Felt So Real,
I Could Feel
The Earth Shake.
That Was The Thunder.
Leaked Into Your Dream.
Scout Was There.
Well, We Know The Buffalo's
A Native Thing.
But I'm Tired
Of Being Navajo.
I Wanna Be
From Brooklyn...
Or Graceland.
Go For It.
Ah, I Couldn't
Leave Scout...
Or My Grandparents.
My Parents
Left Here.
Where'd They Go?
They Died In A Car Crash
On Their Way To Seattle.
I'm Sorry.
That's Gotta
Be Rough On You.
Been Tougher On Scout.
That's When
She Stopped Talking.
She Hasn't Spoken
A Word Since.
What Did The Doctor Say?
A Whacked Place.
Dr. Townsend: It Was
Only One Night.
Boys: Whoo!
Hey, Hey, Hey!
There He Is.
Man, Are We Glad
To See You.
We Were Just Trying
To Remember
Where Those
Waterfalls Were.
You Guys Gotta Go Clean Up
The Mess You Made.
No, Man,
We Wanna Swim.
No Way.
Shunting Steps
Is Private Property.
Get Over It.
I'd Rather Settle It.
Oh, Yeah?
Me And You.
One On One.
We Race.
I Win, We Get To Ride
Where We Want,
When We Want,
And You And Your Tribe
Back Off.
Won't Happen.
I Win,
And You Guys Get Lost.
Turquoise Mountain
Ski Resort,
Next Saturday.
Up And Down.
Up And Down.
I'm There.
We Gotta Push
It Back A Week.
I'm Getting
My Braces Off.
Devil's Revenge.
The Trail.
Bring It On.
[Knock On Door]
I'm Not Too Early,
Am I?
Maybe A Little.
Thomas Says You Have
A Remedy For Everything.
Yeah, Pretty Much.
Well, I Was Wondering
If You Had Any Indian--
I Mean, Navajo Herbs
And Medicines
To, Uh, You Know,
Get Me Into Shape.
Come On.
What Kind Of Shape
You Wanna Be In?
I Knew
This Lakota Warrior
Who Shape-Shifted
Into A Cougar.
I--I Just Wanna Be Ready
For A Cross-Country,
Mountain Bike Race.
You Have A Good
And True Reason
For Doing This?
So, When Is This Race
Gonna Take Place?
2 Weeks.
You Eaten Anything
Then Don't.
Like Photosynthesis.
Good For Stamina,
Muscles, And Joints.
[Chuckles] Bloodletting
And Leeching Were Popular,
Too, You Know.
This Is Even Older,
Scout's Just Wondering
Why You're Trying
To Get All Buff.
No, I'm Not.
No One Ever
Lies To Scout.
I Challenged Kyle
To A Race.
I Win, And They're
Out Of Here
For Good.
Who Are You
To Take This On?
That's Not
A Bad Question.
I Mean...
And What If
You Don't Win?
I'll Win.
This Is Definitely
Not A Good Idea.
Yes, It Is.
Thomas, You've Said It
I Didn't Understand
At The Time
How Important It Is
To Do Something
Bigger Than Yourself
For Others,
And It's The Only Thing
These Guys Accept.
I'll Race Them.
No Offense.
You're A Tourist
Around Here.
Thomas Is Right,
But He Should
Totally Defend The--
Where Is The Race?
Devil's Revenge.
You Guys Know It?
Josh: Whoa.
I Should Race.
I Can Do This.
Dude, This
Is Nasty Work.
And, Well,
Your Bike
Is Kind Of Weak.
I Can Fix It Up
I'll Race Kyle.
I Know The Terrain.
I Have To Race
For Me
And For You
And For Scout
And For
My Mistakes.
What Am I
Doing Here?
Scout Thinks
You Should Race.
You Know What's
At Stake Here?
He's Never Done
This Course.
Kyle Will Be
All Over Him.
You'll Need This
For Good Fortune.
Turquoise Heals
And Attracts
Good Friends.
Just, Uh,
Don't Start Shaving
Your Legs Or Anything.
[Breathing Heavily]
[Breathing Heavily]
Mmm. That Smells So Good.
You're Gonna Have To
Give Me The Recipe.
[Breathing Heavily]
How's It Goin'?
Going Well.
Give It Up, Dude.
Nobody Wants
A Turf War.
Then Beat It.
Let It Go, Dude.
You Don't Have The Chops
Or The Bike
To Beat Kyle.
Yeah, I Do.
[Groans And Coughs]
What Was That, Kyle?
Hi, Thomas.
Is Josh With You?
No. He Hasn't Been
With Us All Day.
Have You Heard
From Josh?
No. Sorry, Mrs. T.
Ok, Thanks.
Hello, This
Is Blaine Townsend,
And I Was Wondering
If You Could Help Me.
We Interrupt Our Normally
Scheduled Programming
To Broadcast
A Special Alert.
We're Looking
For Josh Townsend,
5'6", Brown Hair,
Probably Soaking Wet
By Now.
Plug In, Josh.
Your Mom's Looking For You.
We're Looking For Josh.
Do You Have Any Idea
Where He Might Be?
He's Been Riding
The Train Tracks Lately.
Don't Worry. Trains
Don't Travel There Anymore.
Well, How--How Far Out
Is That Place?
Try The North End
Of The Res,
And I'll Try The Arroyo.
Let's Go.
I--I Couldn't Get Home.
My Bike's Out There
Never Mind.
Thanks For The Ride.
Pull Up
Your Seat Belts.
We Can't
Thank You Enough.
Thank You
For All Your Help.
Well, His Bruises
Will Heal,
But It's His Spirit
That Needs Herba Del Lobo
I'll Make Sure
He Gets Some.
We've Got
A Medical Doctor
On The Way. Thanks.
We're Covering
All Of Our Bases.
I'm Just Saying...
See Ya.
Thank You.
[Whispers] Would You
Step Outside?
His Bruises Are Going
To Heal Just Fine,
But Has He Been
Under Any Kind Of Pressure
Or Stress Lately?
Well, He's Still Asleep.
But I Can't Say
It's Peaceful.
He Just Seems
So Restless.
What's He Doing
Riding His Bicycle
In The Middle Of A Storm?
And Why Is My Son
Out There
In The Middle Of Nowhere
Riding Around?
What Was He Thinking?
He Was Training
For A Competition.
Since When
Does He Compete?
Is There Something
I Don't Know About?
He Was Gonna Race
Against This Kid
Whose Gang Keeps On
Tearing Up Navajo Places
Josh Challenged Him
So They'd Finally
Leave Us Alone.
He's A Really Strong Rider.
[Coughs And Wheezes]
All Right, Step Outside
And Get Some Air,
I'll Tell You
If Something
Changes, Ok?
Ok. Ah-Choo!
Girl, On Radio:
All Of Us Here At Ktqt
Are Wishing Josh Townsend
A Speedy Recovery.
We're Sending Over
White Light
And A Couple Of Pizzas,
So Get Better, Dude.
You're Looking
For Something,
But You Don't Know What.
Mmm, No.
No, I'm Not.
Yes, You Are.
I'm Just, Uh,
A Little Lost.
No, You're Not.
Yes, I Am.
I'm, Uh,
Ahem, Trying To Get
Something For My Son.
Get Him A Bike.
Excuse Me?
A Bicycle.
Uh, That's A--That's
A Brilliant Idea,
But How Did
You Know That?
I'm Sorry. I'm--
I'm A Scientist. Uh...
I Measure, Calculate.
Things Are Pretty Much
Absolute For Me,
And I--
I Don't--I Don't
Understand You People.
There's One
In The Back.
One--One What?
One Bicycle.
I Can Let You
Have It Real Cheap.
You're Awake. [Laughs]
How Are You Feeling?
You Have Been Asleep
For 2 Days!
Ok, Let Me Check
Your Wounds.
Oh, These
Are Healing Nicely.
I Knew That Alehoof
Would Work.
Good Morning.
Awesome Bike, Dad.
Well, Apparently,
You Need One For A Race.
I Don't Know.
I Do.
Ok, Now, Remember,
Distance Is A Product
Of Velocity
And Trajectory,
But Only Up
To A Certain Angle.
After That, You're Just
Gonna Get The Height
But Not The Distance.
So Don't Go Too High.
That's My Boy.
Pound It.
Right Over Here.
I Wanna Get
A Straight Shot Of Josh.
What's Goin' On, Dr. T?
Rock On, Moon!
Abuela, John.
What's Up There,
Are You Sure You're
Feeling All Right?
I Feel Fine.
Are You Sure?
Yeah. Stop Asking Me.
Now, Remember,
After The Second
Hairpin Turn--
I Know! Stop Telling Me
That. It Drops Out.
I Was Gonna Say
That's When You
Start Praying, But...
All Right. You Guys Climb
The Fire Roads To Summit,
Then Pick Up Mine Field
Back Down To Devil's Revenge.
First One Back Here Wins.
You Guys Ready?
Thomas: Shake Hands.
See You Soon.
See You.
Play Nice, And I'll Let
You Ride On My Land.
Don't Worry. We'll Find You
Some Nice Trails In Nevada.
It's Starting.
Who's Gonna Call It?
Man: Come On,
Moon, Can You Get It
Started Here?
We're Counting On You.
You Can
Do It, Josh.
Mount Your Bikes!
Already Did.
Can You Just Raise
And Lower Your Arm, Please?
Got It.
Yes! Go! Go,
Go, Go, Josh!
Let's Go!
Oh, Come On!
They're Going Up
Sources Say
The Heat Is On.
Kyle And Josh Are
On A Stairway To Heaven.
That's The Turquoise Ascent,
2,000 Vertical Feet
Of Leg-Burning,
Lung-Busting Heartbreak.
Watch Up There.
[Both Breathing Heavily]
Go, Baby, Go, Baby,
Go! [Laughs]
Oh, Yeah!
Yeah, Go!
Woman: Oh, Man.
[Breathing Heavily]
They're Off The Preserve.
Right Behind You!
They're At The Top!
Find It!
Find It.
Yes, Yes!
Josh Is On His Way
Back Down.
You See Him?
[Kyle Groans]
Go, Kyle!
Oh, They're Going
Down Mine Field.
It's Kyle And Josh
On The Mine Field
Dirt Staircase,
Coming Down
To Terra Firma Before,
Dare I Say It,
Devil's Revenge.
Mountain Biking's
Mother Lode.
No Way!
All Right!
Hey, Neat Jump,
But The Trail's That Way.
Yo! Trail!
What Are You Doing?
The Buffalo Are Headed
Toward Town.
We Have To Stop Them
Before They Reach
The Ridge.
Josh, What Exactly
Did You See?
The Whole Herd,
Going Towards
Turquoise Trail.
Let's Go!
The Buffalo
Are Stampeding!
They're Gonna
Destroy The Town!
Dude, That Was Awesome!
I Mean, Did You See Me?
I Totally Kicked His Butt
Right Out Of The Chute.
No, You Didn't.
Whatever. I Rule Now.
Didn't You Hear?
The Herd Got Out.
Not My Job.
Those Guys
Need Help.
You Don't Live There,
Come On.
Dude, I'm Gonna
Finish The Race.
We Need To Lead Them
To The Western End...
Over There.
Don't Get Too Close.
They Want To Go Where
We Want Them To Go.
They Just Need To Know
Where That Is.
Watch Out, Ok?
Yeah. You, Too.
Let's Ride!
Hey, Guys, Follow Me.
Go, Go, Go, Go!
So Just Call On Me,
When You Need A Hand
We All Need Somebody
To Lean On
I Just Might
Have A Problem
That You'd Understand
We All Need Somebody
To Lean On
Lean On Me
Both: When
You're Not Strong
And I'll Be Your Friend
I'll Help You Carry On
It Won't Be Long
Till I'm Gonna Need
Somebody To Lean On
Go Up There!
Radio Deejay:
Good Evening,
Turquoise Trail,
And We Really Mean That.
You Know, Things And People
Come Into Our Lives
And We Don't
Always Know Why
Until We Live Through
A Day Like Today.
Yeah! Ha!
Radio Deejay: Now That
The Buffalo Are Back
Where They Belong
And Our Kids Are Safe
And Soaking Their Knees,
We Want To Thank Everyone.
You Were Awesome, Guys.
Sleep Tight.
[Overlapping Conversations]
Yet Eh.
Yet Eh.
Hey, Very Good, Josh.
Um...This Is
Prickly Pear Salad,
That's Prickly Pear
And This Is
Prickly Pear Surprise.
Is That Rice Wild
Enough For You?
Totally Neat.
Come In, Everyone.
Navajo Can Reside
In The City,
But We Can Never
Really Live There.
The Memories Of Our
Animal Brothers And
Sisters Are Within Us.
They Wake And Stir
When We Come To
Our Holy Place,
Our Dinetah.
This Belonged
To Your Father.
He'd Be Very Proud Of You.
The Arrowhead
Represents Courage,
And Survival.
When You Wear This,
You Honor Our Ancestors.
Their Great Strength
Allowed The Denai To
Through Your Veins Runs
The Blood Of A Proud People.
Sometimes These Truths
Come To Us From Strangers
Who Become Friends.
Tonight We Thank
And Honor Josh Townsend
For Uniting So Many
To Sustain The Buffalo.
You Have Earned The Name
The Two Of You Have
Lived The Ideals Of
Friendship And Loyalty
That Bind Nations
When Every Member
Fulfills His
As You Two Have,
We Are All Blessed.
[Cheers And Applause]
Yo, Thomas Blackhorse.
Yes, Josh
It's A Nice Place
You've Got Here.
Better Take Care Of It.
We Will, Right?
