Native American Movies

Native Americans, also known as American Indians, have often been the "bad guys" in movies. The good cowboys go out and slaughter the bad Indians. Alternately, in movies that feature a Native American character, that character is often either a stereotypical "silent tracker" type or a heavy drinker who needs help. It's only a few movies that portray a more balanced look at the intricate life of the Native American.

Young Guns II - 1990
Chavez - half Indian, half Mexican - is one of Billy the Kid's gang in this brat-pack sequel. He's the one that keeps the group from riding through an Apache burial ground, and calls out Navaho commands to his horse.
