The first film to document the story of Michigan's Native Americans in the Civil War who served in Company K of the 1st Michigan Sharpshooters. During the Civil War a regiment of sharpshooters was being recruited to fight for the Union. Since Michigan's Native Americans were famous as skilled hunters, it was decided to recruit one company--Company K--from among the tribes in Michigan.

Nearly 140 men volunteered for Company K in the 1st Michigan Sharpshooters regiment. Company K was sent to Virginia in 1864 and fought in some of the fiercest battles of the Civil War: The Wilderness, Spotsylvania and the Siege of Petersburg.
