This study deals with the filmic self-representation of Native Americans.
It focuses on five contemporary features directed by indigenes and
deconstructs the ways in which they respond to the legacy of the Hollywood
Indian. By telling their own cinematic stories, Native Americans have
taken up the battle against the century-old one-dimensional
characterizations of America’s original peoples in the mainstream culture.
These indigenous filmmakers highlight the variety and complexity of modern
Native America.
