A scholar of and writer on American Indian studies, Aleiss (California State U.-Long Beach) draws on behind-the-scenes material such as correspondence, evolving scrips, studio publicity materials, reactions from film critics and Native American groups, and records of the self-censorship organization, to cast new light on the portrayal of Native Americans in US films. Among her perspectives are Indian adventures and inter-racial romances, war and its Indian allies, and savagery on the frontier. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
