Reel Injun: On the Trail of the Hollywood Indian (October 18 and 21)

(Extra credit opportunity for all of my students)

Reel Injun: On the Trail of the Hollywood Indian

Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond takes a look at the Hollywood Indian, exploring the portrayal of North American Natives through a century of cinema. Traveling through the heartland of America, and into the Canadian North, Diamond looks at how the myth of “the Injun” has influenced the world's understanding—and misunderstanding—of Natives. More information on the film.
