AIS 160, 4/15/2016 worksheet

Film & Literature Worksheet
Group Participants: _________________________________________________
_________________________________________________________________
Directions: Using class notes, the readings that are on D2L, and each other (the members of
your group), please complete this worksheet. It is meant to help you take away some of the main
points from the film lecture on Monday (Michelle Boyer-Kelly) and the literature lecture on
Wednesday (Xiochen Sun). This worksheet will serve as your (a) attendance and (b)
participation for the day—please make sure every member working in your group puts their
name on this sheet!
I will make copies of these sheets (one for each member) and will pass them back to you next
Friday, so that you can keep them with you for the future Final Exam review.
1. According to the lecture presented on Monday regarding film, please list the main film
eras that were discussed. After naming each era, please write a brief (1 sentence)
summary of what happened in this film era in regards to American Indians.

2. According to the article “Going Native” by Robert Baird (assigned D2L reading for
Monday’s lecture) the change of Lieutenant Dunbar’s (Kevin Costner) name to “Dances
with Wolves” is significant. In a few sentences, discuss how this name change is
important. Refer to both the reading, and to the scene that we saw in class on Monday.

8. As found in Krupat’s article, what is the definition of “native stories of survivance”?
Even though this is a complex definition, what do you think Krupat and Vizenor are
trying to say with this statement/definition?

9. As found in Krupat’s article, what is literary separatism?

10. As you may/may not know, Dances with Wolves was originally a novel (Michael Blake,
1988). Based on the few clips we saw on Monday, which literary group do you think this
book would belong in [separatism, nationalism, Indigenism, or cosmopolitanism]? Write
a few sentences to support your answer.

11. Thinking about the few film clips we saw from Dances with Wolves, what does this
movie say about non-Indian versus Indian land and environmental management?
