Movie Reviews

Fish Hawk
Frieda Stewart | Albuquerque, NM United States | 10/29/2001
(1 out of 5 stars)

"As a Native American, I was very displeased with the sterotyped negative image presented by the character Fish Hawk. Once again, the portrayal of a Native American as "a drunken Indian" is set forth in the yet another film. The usual portrayal of Native Americans in film is that of being blood-thirsty, savage, or ignorant. Films also portray Native Americans as being noble savages, vanishing, or one-with-earth individuals. This film was no exception! Hawk Fish was raised by white people according to the narrative in the film yet at the film's end, he walks off into the setting sun fully dressed in his Indian regalia. The film was offensive."
Great Movie

"I Liked this movie but it had to many stero types. Me as a Native Indian it really bugged me. There are some Native Indians who are drunks but not alot. I liked it but not the stero types."
Very good family film

"my husband and i both thought the movie to be very heart warming. it was an exceptional down to earth type real life portrayal of some of the way things were in that era. we do not feel it degraded the native americans in any way quite the opposite in our opinion."
