Reel Injun - Clip 2

  • Aired: 11/02/2010
  • 01:18
  • Rating: TV-PG
Since the dawn of cinema, Hollywood has made over 4,000 films about Native people -- over 100 years of movies that shape the way we see Indians ... and the way Indians see themselves. Romanticized and demonized, what does it mean to have your identity defined by the movies. Cree Indian filmmaker, Neil Diamond, sets off on a cross-country journey to explore his Hollywood roots.
