Churchill's review on cultural myths and cinema tragecomedies that rewrite history to their liking are somewhat striking. One would expect that there is some bias, but to see it put under the microscope as churchill does is more than an eye-opener.
It's not another "white man steals again" books, but rather an intellectually secure book that makes claims outside the public spectrum of politics. And do I dare say, sometimes radical politics are right! Indigenous americans have been slandered. John Wayne has only secured the subtlely racist notions of indigenous savagery and such.

This should be required reading!
This courageous intellectual has been fired from the University of Colorado for his "controversial" views and opinions. I suppose we are supposed to forget about academic freedom. He also has been hounded to the ends of the earth for claiming he has just a little bit of Native American ancestry, and that he can't "prove it." I have news for the folks demanding this. First of all I hear people often say that they are Irish, Scottish, African American, or whatever, but I never see that they are required to prove it. Why does Ward Churchill have to prove what he is? This is only used to discredit him and what he is saying. I also noticed that the unfavorable reviews are not specific about what is "wrong" with the book. They only state that he does not know what he is talking about, is not really Native American, etc. In my humble opinion, these reviews reflect more on the authors of them than they do on Ward Churchill.
The book is excellent, in my opinion.

Ward Churchill's bad research is evident in the fact that he can't even spell names correctly. More serious is the fact that Churchill is NOT an American Indian. Read morePublished on May 9, 2005 by fruitloop
Great book that goes deeper in the analysis of popular books on native american cultures and "testimonials" written by pro-natives and anglo-saxons alike. Read morePublished on July 17, 2000 by W. Gaultier
