Burns skipped Native soldiers

Latinos & Indians will join PBS' 'War'PBS will not alter Ken Burns' 15-hour World War II documentary "The War," which is finished and scheduled to premiere in September.

But Burns will add to it.

The historian will produce an additional chapter of the film that will examine the contributions of Latinos and Native Americans. The addendum to what many view as Burns' finest film comes in direct response to a campaign by Latino and Native American organizations who expressed anger at not being included in a heroic chapter of American history.
