BURY THE HATCHET by Aaron Walker
Bury the Hatchet is a portrait of three Mardi Gras Indian Big Chiefs of New Orleans. Once plagued by intertribal violence, today these African-American tribes take to the backstreets of New Orleans on Mardi Gras, dressed in elaborate Native American influenced suits that they sew over the course of the year. When tribes meet instead of attacking each other with hatchets and knives, they battle over which Chief has the prettiest suit. (2010, 120 minutes)
