Several years ago the UCLA Film and Television Archive created a database
that listed all known American film and television productions that were
about, or featured, various racial identities including Native Americans.
The database references productions that included Native Americans, as well
as productions that cast non-Native Americans as a Native American
This database was created under the supervision of Daniel Bernardi, and is
available onsite at the Archive research and Study Center. Their email is

portion of the database has hundreds of entries and cover productions form
the early 1900s - 1999.
