Continuity mistake: When Levoi and Crowhorse visit Grandpa for the first time note the white and black beaded belt on the table behind Grandpa.

After that cut the belt now hangs in its original position. (00:37:30 - 00:38:30)

Jennifer 8 picture

Revealing mistake: When Lance Henrickson's character gets killed, there's a close-up of his flashlight lying in the snow with a rivulet of blood flowing past it. It's very obviously fake snow, since there are snowflakes floating on top of the blood.
