Advaita Vedanta Advaita Vedanta[note 1] is a sub-school of the Vedanta[note 2] school of Vedic or Hindu philosophy and religious practice,[web 1] giving "a unifying interpretation of the whole body of Upanishads". The principal, though not the first, exponent of the Advaita Vedanta-interpretation was Shankara Bhagavadpada who systematised the works of preceding philosophers. Its teachings have influenced various sects of Hinduism. The key source texts for all schools of Vedānta are the Prasthanatrayi, the canonical texts consisting of the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita and the Brahma Sutras, of which they give a philosophical interpretation and elucidation. Advaita developed in a multi-faceted religious and philosophical landscape. The tradition developed in interaction with the other traditions of India, Buddhism, Vaishnavism and Shaivism, as well as the other schools of Vedanta.

The basic plot is that a sheriff is aggressively serving eviction notices in a somewhat run-down neighborhood; a Native family consisting of an old man and a high-school boy attempt to thwart the police with a rain dance, then turn to something stronger as the situation escalates. RollingStone.com calls the video “a statement against oppressive authorities and poverty’s injustice.” A writeup at Exclaim.ca seems to nod in approval as well: “It’s all pretty bleak until a First Nations family channels the spirit world to kick some ass.”
