Why are Native Americans painted badly in cowboy films?

They were more than just people who hunted and started wars, quite a lot of them were farmers, sheperds, fur trades men and fisher men. When white man first came to Vinland, they were taught how to adapt to the harsh lands in winter especially Canada which is near enough in the artic circle.

There wouldnt even be a usa today as you know it, if the natives hadnt fed and warmed yous up in that very first winter. What they got in return was smallpox and other shit for their troubles followed by wars and slavery to force them of the lush lands they owned!

Re: Why are Native Americans painted badly in cowboy films?

At first I thought you were questioning the movie studios talents for applying war paint make up.



Answer to your????
To make the white man look better for raping and pillaging in real life.

White folk have a long history of being evil fucks.

Correction- People of all colors have a long history of being evil fucks. Whoever had military superiority throughout history over another group of people is guilty of atrocities. Human nature.

Correct, Fun Guy!
We're obviously all closer related to Chimps than to Bonobos.

Back to the topic…
Everybody knows Winnetou, the noble Chief of the Apache.
Was somewhat difficult in my childhood cause every boy and girl wanted to play Winnetou.
And who plays the enemy cowboy then?
Many Germans still believe that Winnetou is a historical person.
Nope, he's an invention of Karl May…a great invention!

Re: Why are Native Americans painted badly in cowboy films?

I acknowledge your post and like it! I actually wasn’t familiar with Winnetou before your post.

Re: Why are Native Americans painted badly in cowboy films?

Wow…amazing.
Little late, we already talked about "poop" in the other thread.

Re: Why are Native Americans painted badly in cowboy films?

Sorry; sometimes when I get a number of replies, I miss getting to all of them and then they get pushed down into the post history after a time. Didn’t mean to offend.

Re: Why are Native Americans painted badly in cowboy films?

Yep, you're also a Nice Guy.
Understand.
That wasn't about it…but sounds so nice, how your saying it.
I'm touched. ☻

If they are set in the 17-1800s then it is accurate to depict some hostility between the settlers and the Native Americans.

Re: Why are Native Americans painted badly in cowboy films?

Native Americans are not like you, fortunately.

Re: Why are Native Americans painted badly in cowboy films?

Propaganda to not show that whites were the real savages.

Dairy is rape.
Milk has pus.

Agreed!

Please go and take Millard with you.

Re: Why are Native Americans painted badly in cowboy films?

I'm Oglala Lakota and I totally agree with you OP.

And I'm sick of white people playing Native roles. Even in recent years it goes on. It has improved a little, but Hollywood still doesn't portray Native people the way we should be portrayed.

Re: Why are Native Americans painted badly in cowboy films?

I watch Outlander and the producers insisted on using true Natives. If I remember right, they met with the Elders and made sure the Natives were portrayed correctly.

Re: Why are Native Americans painted badly in cowboy films?

White people are better actors.

Re: Why are Native Americans painted badly in cowboy films?

They aren't.

But, to be accurate, most Native Americans were just as warlike as anyone else on the planet.

Re: Why are Native Americans painted badly in cowboy films?

Because they are serving the purpose of being the villain.
