ABOUT OUR FILM
Vanishing Knowledge is a horse movie based on a true story of a small community in Linton, North Dakota who are working tirelessly to save one of America’s oldest treasures, the Nokota® Horse. These horses were not only familial to the Lakota Tribe, but revered for their compassionate spirit, highly adaptable personality and their successful social system. The Nokota® Horse, a feral and semi-feral breed native to North Dakota, often comes with a blue roan coat. So often, in fact, that the color has become a symbol of the breed.
Lakota Sioux Chief Sitting Bull was remembered for the fearless defense of his native land and his people, and in 1876 prophesied their victory in the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Five years later in efforts to weaken the native tribe, the U.S. Army both ceased and slaughtered their horses.
Over a century later, brothers Frank and Leo Kuntz have spent their lives trying to keep and celebrate the exceptional wisdom preserved in the Nokota® herd. With only about 800 Nokota® horses alive worldwide, the fate of 300 lives is threatened as they are endangered of being homeless.
Learn the stories of the people whose lives have been transformed by the same horses they are fighting to save. One of the most emotional horse films to watch for all horse lovers around the world.
