Brothers on Three

The Myrna Loy
Brothers on Three Description:
March 11, 2017, was a night to remember. In front of the hopeful eyes of thousands of friends, family members, and fans, the Arlee Warriors would finally bring the high school basketball state championship title home to the Flathead Indian Reservation. The game would become the stuff of legend, with the boys revered as local heroes. Then, in 2018, the Warriors defended their title after creating a viral suicide-prevention video. In Brothers on Three: A True Story of Family, Resistance, and Hope on a Reservation in Montana, journalist Abe Streep follows the Warriors as they balanced the pressures of adolescence, shouldered the dreams of their community, and charted their own individual courses for the future.

Streep will be joined by Donnie Wetzel, Director and Co-Founder of the MT Indian Athletic Hall of Fame. Together they will discuss sports, power, and change in Montana. From recruitment to officiating to the impact of stories, they will discuss the issues that animate Brothers on Three and that make basketball in Montana such an expression of strength, conflict, and joy.

Cosponsored by the Montana Historical Society, Montana Office of Public Instruction Indian Education Unit and the Helena Indian Alliance.
