Russia 1917: Countdown to Revolution

SBS November 5, 2017

This is the extraordinary story of how Lenin, a stranger to Russia for almost two decades, took sole power of the world's largest country in just a few fateful months. He's the political has-been who came home and made history. On his return to Russian politics, Lenin made peace with his old enemy Trotsky and gained a new acolyte in Stalin. Between the three of them, these Russian revolutionaries became the architects of a new political regime that changed the world.

Boohoo Boone asks Omri what will happen when they return home, hoping they will have moved forward in time. Little Bear tells Omri and Patrick about the traditional rite of passage in Iroquois culture and of the concept of harmony with the world. Before leaving, Little Bear asks Omri of the plight of the Onondaga people, and Omri tells him the truth. The Onondaga are great, but it is not always great for their people.
