Description

In this entertaining and thought-provoking book, noted historian and musician Bobby Bridger explores the impact of Native American culture on the American psyche. The book also examines the impact of Indigenous American mythology on contemporary identity and the development of modern popular entertainment, particularly the Hollywood film industry. The prophecies of the Lakota holy man Black Elk are woven into a chronicle of American Indians in the American cultural psyche from the era of Buffalo Bill, Sitting Bull, and the Wild West through the creation of the Western, John Wayne, Dances with Wolves, Avatar, and modern mythmaking. In so doing, Bridger provides a highly original look at American history and culture from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day.
