Dances with Wolves


The movie Dances with Wolves was a real good movie and I enjoyed watching it. It showed
how life was back in the time of the Civil War. The movie also showed how Indians lived
and how they respect everything except the white men.

I think you should keep on showing this movie to your other classes. When you showed this
movie, all the kids in class paid attention to it and actually learned something from it
because it caught there attention unlike other movies we have seen. If you show this to
other classes it will have the same result and will help you in teaching the class. Also,
the movie helped us understand how life was like in the West. It showed us that the
soldiers were really ruthless and that they would just kill the buffalo for the hide and
tongue, leaving the rest of the animal there to rot. While the Indians would take
everything from the animal and use it to there advantage and there would be nothing to
waste.

Out of a scale of 5(as being the best), I would give it a 4 and a half. The movie had a
real good plot. It showed an American soldier leave his post and communicates with the
Indians, which was very shunned upon. The American got very friendly with the Indians and
also had a liking towards one of the females. While there relationship goit stronger they

    Dancing With Wolves Dances with Wolves Lt. John Dunbar was lying on a hospital bed, leg totally mutilated. Barely conscious, the man over heard the surgeon say he could not amputate this mans leg as tired as he was. Dunbar didn’t like what he heard, so when the surgeons left, he grabbed his boat, and he slowly slid the boat up his mutilated foot biting on a stick to relive the massive pain. He returned to the battlefield, with only one thing on his mind, suicide. So, he took a horse, and rode it

    On A Role The savage persona, the war paint, the feathers and the beating drums are just some of the stereotypical images and attributes associated with Native American culture. The casting of Native Americans into villainous roles of early film and television has perpetuated a false perception of Native Americans that is still tied to their culture today. For centuries, Native Americans have been defined by stereotypical perceptions of Indian culture. These preconceived notions of Native cultur

También cuestionan si la antropología es, o debería ser una ciencia. Ya
  • DANCES WITH WOLVES
    DANCES WITH WOLVES In Dances With Wolves, a major problem in the nineteenth century was westward expansion. Although the final outcome was good, it was a struggle to move the country into the wilderness. The government was greedy and wanted to take the Native Americans\' land away from them. As a political leader that time, I would not allow such a thing to happen. The Indians would be treated with respect and able to keep their land. The white Americans would be expected to treat them as equal

Lutz - Unnatural Emotions "Yes, it\'s only Reservation Blues but I like it:" On the Connection between Christian and Native Religions One of the most interesting aspects of the anthropological study of Catherine A. Lutz, entitled Unnatural Emotions, is that the author applies the same sort of intense self-examination to her own project as an anthropologist amongst the Ifaluk as she does to the Ifaluk themselves. Every individual at some point in his or her own life has been confront

    Dances with wolves The movie Dances with wolves is a movie that depicted the Indians in an unstereotypical way. Everybody in this time thought of the Indians as thieves, beggars, and savages. They took over other people\'s land and killed the buffalo. I know that a lot of people have misunderstood, mistreated, or misjudged someone in their lifetime. All people are worthy of respect, you cannot just judge by first instinct or by what others say. Americans back then were small minded, revengeful,
