Storyline

"Winnetou", the still popular American Indian character created by German author Karl May in the 19th century is a symbol of Native stereotypes, of lingering racism and colonialism: the self-bestowed privilege of taking and using whatever you want, even living peoples, for self-gratification. Intentional or not, these attitudes and behaviors continue the cycle of genocide, and can be harmful to everyone, no matter their ethnicity. Most films on similar topics concentrate only on Native experiences in North America, but through discussions with Natives, living in or having visited Germany, the correction of Eurocentricized history and insight on German society, we'll present why these stereotypes and practices must end: in Germany and worldwide. While some may minimize the effect or harm of stereotypes, they are evidence of much deeper societal issues of injustice, inequality and inequity many countries now face.
