ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- A new PBS film, "The Warrior Tradition," seeks to examine the history of Native Americans in the U.S. military since World War I.

The film illustrates the mixed feelings some Native Americans felt toward the U.S. military and how tribal members embraced those who served as "warriors."

The one-hour documentary co-produced by WNED-TV Buffalo Toronto and Florentine Films/Hott Productions, Inc., is scheduled to air on most PBS stations Monday.
