One of the blogs i follow mentioned that an amazing film has been rediscovered. Back in 1920 there was a silent made where the entire cast was native american, and it didn’t involve any invading white men at all. I love the History Blog, always has interesting goodies for me =)
Back to the movie … The Daughter of Dawn had as I said an all native american cast, and they brought their own artifacts to serve as props, one of which was a teepee that was also just recently rediscovered in a museum collection. According to the post, there are plans to release the movie on DVD! I am hoping that it will have some good commentary added. There is also a short clip of the movie at the blog. Very spiffy.
