Reel Injun( Visual )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and German and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An entertaining and provocative look at Hollywood's depiction of Native Americans, Reel Injun journeys through a century of cinema to set the record straight. Traveling through the heartland of the U.S., to the Black Hills and Monument Valley, Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond examines how the myth of the movie "Injun" has influenced the world's understanding -- and misunderstanding -- of Natives. With clips from hundreds of classic and recent films document the shift from nuanced silent-era heroes to the Western's "noble savage" stereotype, leading up to the bourgeoning Native independent scene of Smoke Signals and The Fast Runner. Containing candid interviews with celebrated directors, writers, actors and activists, including Clint Eastwood, Robbie Robertson, Sacheen Littlefeather, John Trudell, and Russell Means, Reel Injun is an insightful and essential compendium for understanding the racial politics of Hollywood and the continuing artistic vibrancy of Native peoples." -- Back of container

Wounded heart : Pine Ridge and the Sioux( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wounded Heart focuses on the Lakota Sioux at Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota where they live, isolated and alienated, from American society. Interviews with tribe members, government officials, health care providers, the publisher of the tribal newspaper, and an anthropologist result in a distressing picture of the health issues, economic strains, and adverse social conditions that dominate the lives of the Lakota Sioux. Russell Means, perhaps the most famous extant American Indian activists, is the voice of the film, which is by turns accusatory, illuminating, and marginally hopeful that strengthening of cultural values can help sustain life on the reservation
