Some of the best films ever had a Native American theme and this is my list of the best of those. Obviously people will know Dances With Wolves and The Last of the Mohicans, but there are some other gems in the bunch like A Man Called Horse and Billy Jack that newer generations might not have had the pleasure of seeing yet.

Hopefully you agree with my list, but better still, I hope it opens you up to a world of Native American cinema.
