Imagining Indians (1992)
Color. 86 min. (public television version: 58 min.)
Director: Victor Masayesva, Jr.
Employing a keen sense of humor to reveal a Native American perspective on the misrepresentation of Native Americans in feature films, this unconventional film plows headlong into the theme of the commodification and appropriation of Native American arts and material culture. The all-Indian crew visited tribal communities in Arizona, Montana, New Mexico, South Dakota, Washington and the Amazon to produce this film.
