Killing the Indian Maiden

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter discusses how the western has a tradition of shifting and recreating itself to fit the needs of each new era of viewers. However, it appears that the western may no longer be an adequate allegory for war and nation building, particularly when other genres seem more accessible to contemporary generations of viewers. Still, the Celluloid Maiden is able to capture the national imagination across genres and a replaying of the stereotypes suggests that the Indian remains an important cultural icon.

Keywords:   western, allegory, war, nation building, Celluloid Maiden, stereotypes, Indian, cultural icon
