Lots of favorable reviews for 'We Shall Remain' on PBS

PBS began airing the five-part series "We Shall Remain," " this week and the reviews are nearly all positive.

The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Los Angeles Times are among those weighing in with favorable words. Most say the series gets better towards the end because the last two episodes -- on Geronimo and Wounded Knee 1973 -- don't rely on re-enactments.

The series is told from the Indian point of view. "As one surviving activist puts it in the film’s final hour: 'Every tribe in this country has a time of horror, I mean a time of absolute horror,'"
