"I'm an Indian Too" (1946) by Irving Berlin

"Inventing the Indian (2012) uncovers myths about the American Indian. It looks at films such as Soldier Blue, Stagecoach, A Man Called Horse and Billy Jack, and books including The Last of the Mohicans, Black Elk Speaks and Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee. It also covers Geronimo and Sitting Bull."--Sholem Stein

"The great changes in practically every phase of the Indian's life that have taken place, especially within recent years, have been such that had the time for collecting much of the material, both descriptive and illustrative, herein recorded, been delayed, it would have been lost forever. The passing of every old man or woman means the passing of some tradition, some knowledge of sacred rites possessed by no other; consequently the information that is to be gathered, for the benefit of future generations, respecting the mode of life of one of the great races of mankind, must be collected at once or the opportunity will be lost for all time. It is this need that has inspired the present task." --The North American Indian (1907) by Edward S. Curtis
