Quotes

Russell Means: When we watched the Indians getting slaughtered at the end of every movie... well, my brother would refuse to watch it. Every time that bugle went off and the charge started, my brother - he was a year and a half younger than me - he'd go like this...
[bending over, head between knees]
Russell Means: ...and he wouldn't look. He wouldn't watch. And we'd come out of those theaters after the, uh, cavalry had rescued the white people, and all of a sudden we'd hear, "There's those Indians," and we'd start fighting....

More Propaganda from the Leftie Agenda Machine
3 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A documentary about the evolution of the depiction of First Nations people in film, from the silent era to today.

Featuring clips from hundreds of films, candid interviews with famous Native and non-Native directors, writers and actors, Reel Injun traces how the image of First Nations people in cinema have influenced the understanding and misunderstanding of their culture and history.

Made in Canada of all places.

It's a propaganda piece that strives to convince you if you are white you are evil. If you are American, you are evil.

No.

I say the people who made this trash are evil.

There are idiotic lines like "We never hunted buffalo. We ate fish." Not if you were in the middle of America you moron. There are subliminal scene showing how poor the Indians are. Well get an education and work. No one is stopping you.

THis is really one of the worst movies anyone an watch. It has little to do with Hollywood and EVERYTHING to do with pushing an agenda.

AVOID!
