The Image of “the Indian”: an Example of Edmedia

Stereotypes of the Indian: a Visual Display

Thomas King Powerpoint

Working with the SFU Teaching and Learning Centre, I put together a   VERY short movie (only 1 minute;17 seconds). You will see classic stereotypical images of the Indian as listed by famous Cherokee author Thomas King, in one of his 2003 Massey lectures that is also available in published form called The Truth About Stories. While I began by collecting images to use in a powerpoint, Adam and Jason showed me that I could use Moviemaker and therefore include a downloaded version of Thomas King’s voice! While I am a novice at this sort of thing, and wouldn’t know that by clicking on the slide to the left will begin the movie, you might already notice the cues that let you see what we’ve done.
