Thursday, November 30: Film and Discussion – Reel Injun

7:00 p.m. at Roesch Library Collab Space

Reel Injun, subtitled On the Trail of the Hollywood Indian, explores the portrayal of Native Americans in film. Reel Injun is illustrated with excerpts from classic and contemporary portrayals of Native people in Hollywood movies, as well as with interviews with filmmakers, actors and film historians. It explores various stereotypes about Natives in film, from the Noble savage to the Drunken Indian, and will allow students to see the ways in which these representations directly contribute to contemporary dominant perspectives regarding Native culture.

PLEASE NOTE: Space may be limited and admission is not guaranteed. Arrive early to secure a spot and note that seats may not be reserved for others as it is first-come-first-serve. PATH credit will only be issued to those who remain for the duration of the film as well as the discussion which follows led by Dr. Tom Morgan.
