In the section, “Native American Art in Transition,” from Chapter 3, the origins of the enduring stereotype of the Plains Indian warrior is discussed along with other general points about Native American stereotypes.
Look at these two brief video clips:
A scene from the 1997 documentary “In Whose Honor?” addressing the use of Native American peoples as sports mascots.
and this famous commercial from the 1970s.
What 19th-century assumptions about Native peoples continue to be portrayed in these clips? What are some current examples of these stereotypes? You may also add research into the film, In Whose Honor?, and about the artist/activist Charlene Teters (please cite your sources in your posts).
