A grandfather who believes in tradition. A teenager who believes in today.
I want to tell you a story as it was told to me. So begins a remarkable journey of the soul between two generations of men--a gift of life from the heart of the Dreamkeeper.

Old Pete Chasing Horse (Genie Award winner August Schellenberg, Black Robe), otherwise known as Grandpa, is the storyteller of the Pine Ridge Reservation. Nearing a century old, it's Grandpa's duty to share the legends of his people, lest the stories lose their power. One boy who could use the wisdom of the stories is 17-year-old Shane Chasing Horse (Eddie Spears, Geronimo). A member of the Dog Soldiers, a Native American street gang, Shane is a world apart from his elders. At the request of his mother Janine, the boy's been given a chance to prove himself worthy of his honorable heritage by delivering Grandpa to the All Nations ceremony in New Mexico. Shane agrees, but he has a good motive. He owes his gang money. Getting out of town is good bet, even if it is with an old man and a broken-down pick-up truck (aka Many-Miles-With-No-Muffler).

So begins their trek across the open vistas and distant Black Hills of South Dakota. Along this peaceful terrain, and under the calm of the moon, it's also the perfect time for Grandpa to tell his stories as they were told to him, perhaps for the last time. It's Shane's duty to listen, to remember and to keep the legends alive for the generations to follow. They are visionary stories of star-crossed lovers, of courage and escape, of patience and humility, of making peace with the past, and of facing unknown horizons with an open heart--much like the horizons Shane and Grandpa are about to face on a journey that will change both their lives forever.

The legends of the Native American nations come to life in this groundbreaking new miniseries from Hallmark Entertainment and legendary executive producer Robert Halmi Sr. (Arabian Nights, Merlin). Like Old Pete's wise tales themselves, Dreamkeeper is important and illuminating storytelling for the entire family.

Editor's Note
DREAMKEEPER is a story about the act of storytelling itself, where a man imparts tales of wisdom and self-discovery to his seventeen year old grandson, who is just coming into his own and seems to be getting in a heap of trouble.
