The Native American narrative is one that has been slanted in the larger culture through Hollywood depictions. In this film and post-discussion, we strive to highlight the impact of Hollywood distortion on the perception and livelihood of Native Americans. We seek to enhance the understanding of Native American people through their cultural lens in order to provide respectful content and discussions in our classrooms.
This 2009 documentary unravels the image of North American Natives in Hollywood films. It sheds light on how this has created a common image, or skewed image, of Native Americans. Many clips and interviews examine the influence of Hollywood western film and the cowboy-and-Indian myths and cultural stereotypes
