Summary
This satiric film draws upon the trickster myths of Native American cultures to ridicule stereotypes propagated by the white man and to dramatize the use of humor as an essential tool of Native American survival. Harold, wisecracking leader of the Worriors of Orange and self-styled headmaster of the "school of social acupuncture," is intent on extracting money from the local charitable foundation to fund his latest scheme. Donning neckties to impress the well-intentioned but woefully uninformed members of the Board of Directors, Harold and his band remind the foundation of their "miraculous" success in cultivating miniature oranges in the brisk climate of northern Minnesota with the hope that their benefactors will grant them the resources to grow pinch beans in order to establish a string of coffee houses on the reservation.
