HASH(0xa32dc924) out of 5 stars The structure of the Hollywood Indian! Feb. 4 2015
By PJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is my go to book when I write about the how Hollywood created and reframed the imagery of American Indians. It's sad and frustrating when you read this book, yet you are given in a cinematic chronology of how the "Hollywood Indian" was structured from not only the costumes, the skin color, but also the dialect, the sounds of drums to infuse "fear' to the structure of stereotypes: The Indian maiden, the wise elder, the blood thirsty savage, the drunken Indian and the ecological indian. And more importantly about Native American narratives, how the structure of narratives gives Indians a silent voices, or a violent voices. No agency. Only that of the white man helping the Indian, which we continue to see in modern cinema today.

HASH(0xa3252d5c) out of 5 stars No Page Numbers Feb. 10 2014
By Hally Sablosky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was really unhappy that the ebook didn't have page numbers. Not user friendly to operate, and a very poor textbook ebook when classes assign page numbers to read. I think the ebook could be improved by adding some sort of reference page number.
