What are your favorite movies about the Native American experience?
I was watching two movies last night about this part of History - Geronimo and Crazy Horse? And then I remembered Smoke Signals? And this got me to wondering what were people's favorites that dealt with this part of history...
You know what Blues? We've been "duped" by history books, movies, and what we've been "taught" by this nation! You know this! Look how history books, movies and teachings have portrayed Blacks in America!
As my mother used to say, "If you want TRUTH, go to the horse's mouth!"
Actually neither of these movies painted the American history in a positive manner, and actually painted them in a negative light? It's what I liked about them....
Half truths! "Go to the horse's mouth" eg "Indian Bureaus" where true Americans are!
Although 1/3 Indian descent, I don't know truth! I'm not like the world! It's not where "i've been," but where "i'm going!"
I really like the Billy Jack movies. But there are many good ones.
I thought, The Indian in the Cupboard, a fantasy told from a child's perspective, was kind of interesting, but corny.
I remember seeing the movie "Little Big Man" with Dustin Hoffman and I have been thinking about it lately for some reason. I remember the movie vaguely. I would like to see it again. I remember it having quite a story.
