||Touching, Funny & Pointed|
An excellent overview of the misuse of American Indian images in film, told by the Indians themselves. Takes a lighhearted but pointed approach to explore stereotypes that have lasted far too long. I use this (among other things) to teach about American Indians in the classroom.
