Documentary 01 – Rich Hall’s Inventing the Indian

Wonderful documentary on the Hollywood portrayal of Native American Nations – I enjoyed its sarcastic tone.  Sometimes it even gets insulting towards the intentional misrepresentation, bending of facts and appropriation of their culture and rightly so. What life is like on the reservations nowadays shows the US government in a particularly bad light. One would have thought they’d do more for righting the wrongs of their forefathers, but I guess not.

It’s definitely a recommended viewing for anyone interested in movies, history and sociology.

Here’s a link to the official site:

I would also recommend two additional websites for you on this topic:

1.) http://nativeappropriations.blogspot.com/
Here you have all you need to know about appropriation of Native American Culture.
