The Ballad of Ira Hayes

The Ballad of Ira Hayes is a song written by Peter La Farge in honor of Ira Hayes, a Pima Indian who served in the US Marines during World War II. You can read more about him at wikipedia. The footages included in this video appear to have been taken from the movie, Flags of Our Fathers which stars Adam Beach, the Ojibwa actor we blogged about a year ago.
