The reworking of fact into expedient fantasies is a well-known historical process. In this volume of incisive essays—expanded and revised since the original publication in 1992—Churchill examines the cultural propaganda that has served to support the continued colonization of Native America. From justifying exterminating the savages, to "civilizing" them, to the appropriation and stereotyping of native culture—the noble savage and the quaint dispenser of native wisdom—literature, art, and film crafted by the dominant culture are an insidious political force, disinforming people who might otherwise develop a clearer understanding of Native American struggles.
