You have to realize some things. 1-When these movies were made Indigenous Peoples were treated as far less than equal. 2-Movie companies meant jobs that were otherwise unavailable. 3-No one cared what the Native Americans thought about how they were portrayed.

Times have changed. Those images you talk about are the reason for such strict regulations now.
