Indians in Cinema explores the development of images of Indians in mainstream cinema from 1900 to the present.  Within the class students view movies such as BROKEN ARROW, DANCES WITH WOLVES, TWILIGHT: NEW MOON, POCAHONTAS, SMOKE SIGNALS, and THE LESSER BLESSED and will learn to analyze how movies have created problematic images and, more recently with Native direction and influence, more accurate representations. 

Catalog Description:
