Why not let Native American Indians pick? The're list will be quite different! The New World? Are you serious? several of these movies had whites portraying Indians or had other flaws. Where is "Windwalker?" where is other independent films that truly portray us as real people? You do have" Smoke Signals" but where is "Pow-wow Highway?"

A very bad film based on a very good book. Didn't do it justice, not even close. I'm just really not impressed with Chris Ayres as a director....not sure I'd put "Smoke Signals" on the list. Cour d'Alene people with Lakota accents, obsessing about Little Big Horn even though the Cour d'Alene had nothing to do with it....because, well, Native Americans sit around all day, making numerous references to Little Big Horn regardless of what nation they are from....and they all live in tepees, too. Sorry, just seemed like a stereotype. The film really annoyed me. One film I’m glad isn’t on the list–”Skins”. A very bad film based on a very good book. Didn’t do it justice, not even close.

An amazingly realistic film about the Haudenosaunee and their early experience with the Jesuit missionaries. Another film I would add–”Black Robe”.

Who or what body/agency/institution actually picked these films based on the purported criteria stated above? How many of the films are actually written, directed, and/or cast actual Indigenous people? How many of the top-ten films actually circumvent any of the conventional stereotypes of Indigenous people? In fact, "The Fast Runner" and "Smoke Signals" are the only two films that don't fall into this category. Equally important, how many Indigenous people qualify your film list as "Indigenous films" as opposed to films that have Indigenous-based themes in the films' narratives?
