"The Last Algonquin" - The Movie

What makes a truly great movie? Should it make us forget the world for two hours? Should it make us laugh or cry? Should it teach us something? Should it change our way of thinking, or perhaps even change our character, just from watching it? Should such a movie inspire us, and if so, inspire us to do what, like maybe help our fellow man? Should we walk out of the movie theatre where it played, inspired and determined to do something we had not considered before? Could such a movie help us find peace?

Once in a very great while, perhaps once in a lifetime, or even once in several generations, a book comes along that makes you stop in your tracks. You see flecks of gold in the pages...wait...I think I've found GOLD, you say. You've never seen anything like this. Can it really be GOLD? Right here? You are moved to tears. You burst with emotion...you laugh...you cry. It is GOLD, you say...I've really found it...and it is in this book I'm holding...

Such has been the reaction from many of those who have read, "The Last Algonquin." Recognized by many to be the definitive work on the struggle of the Native American, it has not just been a N.Y. Times best-selling book for many years, but rather a vehicle of transformation for those who have read it. It would be hard to imagine anyone putting the book down without tears in their eyes, moved by its compelling tale of an Algonquin who lived alone for most of his life, believing himself to be the last of his tribe, and asking the young Boy Scout who befriends him to tell his story so that he can live on.

Here are a few comments by readers of the book, sent to Ted Kazimiroff, the book's author:

Dear Ted,

"It's 11:45 at night and I have just finished reading The Last Algonquin. Although I am typically not a late-night person, but sleep is impossible until I write this letter. I have been deeply moved, first by this amazing tale but even more by your skill in conveying not only the story but also the spirit within it. Your father would be so proud of you and Joe Two Trees must be at peace, knowing his story lives.

My father received this book as a gift on Fathers Day from my sister. He is 87 now and both his mind and body have been weakened by a stroke. However, he read it immediately, enjoying the story but also being warmed by so many happy memories of your dad. Then he read it a second time. He couldn't get enough of the good feelings. What a gift that was. Thank you!"

Most sincerely,
--Dorothy Williamson Handel

Dear Ted,

"The day after I finished the book, I truly sobbed as I explained the story to my husband. I have continued to cry when trying to tell friends. And I have highly recommended the book to friends.

Joe Two Trees' story is a powerful one. I am so glad that he met your father and that you have shared that story and relationship. Thank you."

Sincerely yours,
--Susanna Fennema

Dear Mr. Kazimiroff,

"I am a student, of my own choosing, of Native American studies. I am inexplicably drawn to the subject. (All my life!) I usually only read authors of Native American descent. I just finished reading your book, The Last Algonquin and am asking you to PLEASE make the story into a movie. I never write to strangers but I think that others should know this story. I think it would make a very good movie!!"

Very sincerely,
--Judy Torres

Dear Mr. Kazimiroff,

"I wish to tell you that your book of your father's encounter with Joe Two Trees is one of the most wonderful stories I've read in years. Tremendous! I actually came across the book by accident a number of years ago while I was in our public library. Being a sympathetic person, as I am, for the plight of the Native American people, the title of the book jumped out at me. I was not disappointed when I took the book out of the library - on the contrary - I was enthralled! Since then I have purchased the book for myself and as "gifts."

Thank you very much Mr. Kazimiroff for such a beautifully written book. I truly wish somebody would make a decent movie out of it."

Sincerely yours,
--Rick A. Seidita

Dear Mr. Kazimiroff,

"I haven't written an author of a book for a long, long time, but I just had to take the time to write you and thank you personally for writing the book The Last Algonquin, and for keeping the memory of Joe Two Trees alive.

I've never had the privilege of knowing and talking with a real Indian. I just read stories about them, and this was certainly one of the best I've ever read, and I can assure you I will read it again and always treasure it."

--Ruth Ann McCullough

Dear Ted,

"I must tell you how much I enjoyed The Last Algonquin. I could not put it down till I was done with it. What a remarkable story. I felt as if I was there the whole time. You did a wonderful thing in writing the book, and I feel so very privileged to know you personally."


Dear Ted,

"I have just finished reading The Last Algonquin. I find it a little difficult to write this now because I have been crying. When I began the book, I cried also. Then I was moved by the poignancy of your writing this book as a living monument to your father, a great man who touched the lives of everyone he knew so profoundly. When I finished the book, I was crying for Joe Two Trees and the many millions like him, good, decent people whose lives have been blasted by the irrational hates and prejudices they have been forced to endure.

You have written a really fine book, elegant in its simplicity and yet rich with the overtones of many profound truths. I think that the seeds of this story have been within you for many years, for Joe's values have been your values, too. Courage, physical strength, endurance, a love of nature and a kind of transcendent wisdom and intelligence have always characterized you. In this age of easy pleasure, perhaps you are the anachronism just as Joe once was in his age.

I hope that The Last Algonquin brings you the recognition and success you deserve."


So as one can see from these comments, this book can not be taken lightly. It is ready to do all of the things a truly great movie should do: Help us forget the world for two hours. Make us both laugh and cry. Teach us something. Change our way of thinking, and even change our character - just from watching it. Inspire us to help our fellow man. Walk out of the movie theatre where it played, inspired and determined to do something good that we had not considered before. Help us find peace. And perhaps more than anything else...it can help us find God.

Joe Two Trees does live on. And his story will be told. You are welcome to join us in this magnificent adventure and help us see this extraordinary book made into a once-in-a-lifetime motion picture experience.
