films The Best Native American Movies  

22 items Follow Embed

My version of the best Native American movies ever made. Some of these are all-time classic movies, others are lesser-known but equally loved by their fans. Personally, I've always been a fan of Daniel Day Lewis and am joyous to put him and The Last of the Mohicans on the top of this list of my favorite Native American movies.

Hopefully you agree with my choices, but if you don't, make your own list. Maybe you know of some Native American movies that I don't and we can compare notes later.
