AMERICAN INDIANS IN CINEMA:
PORTRAYALS AND PARTICIPATON, ONSCREEN AND BEHIND THE SCENE
Lance Rhoades, Seattle Film Institute
Speaking courtesy of Humanities Washington
Almost a quarter of all films made from 1900 to 1950 were Westerns, which frequently represented American Indians as violent obstacles to progress. Rhoades will prompt us to address the role cinema has played in producing and perpetuating perceptions of the American Indian and its lingering implications. Rhoades is director of film studies at the Seattle Film Institute and has taught at the University of Washington and guest lectured at MIT.
