No One Ever Sees Indians: Native Americans in Media

A Road Scholar Program by Ernest M. Whiteman III

“Are you watching closely?”

This presentation is loosely structured as a three-part magic act. Ernest discusses the many representations of Native Americans in media, how far back these depictions go, and how these representations inform audiences’ perceptions of Native peoples and issues.

This presentation reflects the ideology of lived experience, ownership of culture versus the authorship of expertise of Native representation, and its reductive constructs. Ernest will show that what people know and see about Native Americans in media has always been an illusion.

This event is Free and Open to the public. For more information, please contact Casey Babcock at
