Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond takes an insightful look at the ‘Hollywood Indian’, exploring the portrayal of North American Indigenous people through a century of cinema.

The film includes clips from hundreds of classic and recent Hollywood movies, and candid interviews with celebrated Indigenous and non-Indigenous film celebrities, activists, film critics and historians. 

Traveling through the heartland of America, Diamond looks at how the myth of “the Injun” has influenced the world’s understanding and misunderstanding of Native Americans. 

During the last century, Hollywood has made more than 4,000 films about Native Americans and many of these films have influenced the way the world views them.
