Popé did what others couldn't

“Po’pay, A True American Hero”...An Ambitious Documentary About an Amazing ManIt’s a history of Native America very few are familiar with. And unlike most we read and see, this true story isn’t one of defeat, disease, genocide, and deprivation. This history is about a success; the story of an Indigenous war and religious leader whose triumph has allowed the people of his region to thrive more than 300 years later.

Po’pay may not be a household name, but his leadership in the Pueblo Revolt in 1680 accomplished what Crazy Horse, Tecumseh, Chief Joseph, and others heroically tried and failed at doing.
