Answer in complete sentences and citeyour sources within your answers. You do not need a works cited page. PLEASE ANSWER ALLPARTS OF EACH QUESTION!!Section I. Short Answer Questions (2-3 paragraphs each): 20 points eachQuestion 1:Over the course of the semester, we viewed the “We Shall Remain” Film Series aswell as Lighting the Seventh Fire. In your opinion, how do these films help break and/orheighten stereotypes surrounding American Indian people? Please use examples from ALL OFTHE FILMSwhen constructing your answer.All of these films in the We Shall Remain series help break and/or heighten stereotypesthat surround American Indian people in many ways. In the first film, the main topic is theWampanoag people because of how much they helped the pilgrims. The impact that theWampanoag tribe made for the pilgrims was tremendous considering the pilgrims had to startwith pretty much nothing and build everything from the ground up. The up and downcollaboration of these two started with a handshake and a friendly gesture of 5 freshly killed deerwhich commenced the first feast between the pilgrims and the Wampanoag people. This showsthat even though the pilgrims were strangers, the Native Americans still helped them in their timeof need. In Tecumseh’s Vision, the second film, the roles of the indigenous peoples that arepresented are in a very nice matter because at first, they stood up for themselves by saying thateverything that was happening was enough and they wouldn’t stand for it any longer.In the third film, the images that are presented about indigenous people are harsh yetlenient. By this I mean that while the film shows struggles of the Native Americans and whatthey had to do, the US government was still trying to run them out of their own land. It is verysad that around 4,000 people had died due to sickness, starvation, and exposure because of theselfishness of the government at the time. The fourth film talked about how Indigenous peoplesand Native American tribes are presented by showing the battles and how they were fought. Afterthe raids, Geronimo’s tribe considered him a man in the eyes of the Bedonkohe, a band withinthe Apache tribe. This was a very important thing in the Apache culture. The fifth film, aprofessional talks about the Oglala way of life which is the way that the whites or people of theUnited States thought that Lakota lived such as living inside of teepees and hunting buffalos andother animals for a living. These all heighten the stereotype of Native Americans because eachtribe has their own way or living, culture, and type of land they live on. When people think of
Native Americans and how they live their life, they tend to think of people that live in teepees
