Reservation Reelism: Redfacing, Visual Sovereignty, and Representations of Native Americans in Film by English literature professor Michelle H. Raheja explores the personal narratives and visual aesthetics of Indigenous actors, entertainers, and filmmakers from the inception of the motion picture industry in the United States and Canada to the present. Her work begins with the silent movie era and proceeds to Indigenous peoples current work as filmmakers and actors. The final chapter reviews the importance of Atanarjuat (The Fast Runner) film production. The book includes Hollywood stills and photographs of Native American actors such as Jay Silverheels, Luther Standing Bear, Molly Spotted Elk, Chauncey Yellow Robe, Elizabeth Burning, and Lizzie Pablo.
