That’s why Hollywood is still saving Natives. Because they care. Want a recent example? What would've happened to poor ol’ Thunder Heart Woman if not for the kindly intervention of Jacob Wheeler in the 2005 miniseries, Into the West? Thank Gawwwd, Jacob cared. About her “plight.”
The miniseries Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, based on the book by Dee Brown, just completed filming and will air on HBO next year. It’s about the “plight” of Indians and boasts an all-star cast including August Schellenberg and Adam Beach. The star? Aidan Quinn.
Paleface to the rescue. Again.
