Did Hollywood icons such as Director John Ford and actors Jimmy Stewart and John Wayne have any part in creating the perception of Native people today? Perhaps! This course will view and analyze some of Hollywood’s greatest Westerns in search of the answer. After learning about the Native Worldview and thinking about what we should be looking for in the films, we will view classic Westerns and explore in group discussions how Indians were portrayed and whether those images might have had lasting effects.
