Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Indians getting new deal in movies, television HOLLYWOOD (AP) The American Indian in films and television: Savage or savaged? From Stagecoach to They Died with their Boots On, the Indian has been pictured in thousands of westerns as a crafty, scalp hunting, toma- hawk-slinging marauder. At the other extreme, he is shown as the stoic, dignified and noble-but dull-witted-red man. "The motion picture commu- nity has been as responsible as any for degrading the Indian and making a mockery of his said Sacheen Lit- tlefeather, reading a statement by Marlon Brando turning down the Academy Award for best actor. A worldwide television au- dience watched as Miss Lit- tlefeather stunned Hollywood with her reading of Brando's denunciation of the industry's treatment of Indians. Some agree with Brando's contentions, but they also point to a trend away from the tra- ditional treatment of the In- dian. David Dortort, who produced Bonanaza and High Chaparral for televison, says: "There's a great deal of truth in what Brando says, but it's out of bal- ance. Many attempts have been made to correct those errors in the past few years." FEW NOW MADE Few westerns are being made today, either for theatres or television, but the old sagebrush sagas show up regularly on the tube Miss Littlefeather said she has protested these films to television stations in San Fran- VASA LODGE DANCE Saturday, May 5th p.m. to 1 a.m. Scandinavian Holl 229-12th St. 'C N.

Since her appearance on the Oscar show she has been asked by the Kaiser Broadcasting Co. to tape spots to precede such films on the Kaiser stations. The spots will say the movies are not "historically true." Some films, beginning with Broken Arrow in 1950, turned more sympathetic to the In- dians. Such films as Soldier Blue, TeE Them Willie Boy Is Here and Little Big Man took an In- dian view. Soldier Blue and Little Big Man showed the In- dians as victims of massacres. George Sonny Miller, an In- dian technical adviser to pro- ducers, said: "Chief Dan George broke the stereotype of the Indian m Little Big Man.
