Topic: Native Americans on Film
For much of Hollywood history, Native Americans were relegated to stereotypical villain roles in Westerns. Since 1970, these depictions have evolved in films such as Little Big Man, Dances with Wolves, and, most recently, Wind River. But how far have we really come? Opportunities for Native American filmmakers are few and far between, with the exception of rarities such as Smoke Signals. Are we still seeing Native Americans through the white man's lens?
