Tanita,
 
We have several from the silent era:
 
In the Land of the War Canoes (aka In the Land of the Headhunters). Edward S.
Curtis' 1914 film based on a Kwakiutl story. All Kwakiutl cast.
 
The Last of the Mohicans (1920) The first feature film of the Cooper story
starring Wallace Beery as Magual. Most faithful rendition of the book, well
made by Clarence Brown and Maurice Tourner, beautiful to look at. Of course,
it's Cooper's version of native americans.
 
The Silent Enemy (1930). All native indian cast with the half exception of
the star Chief Buffalo Child Long Lance whose real name at birth was
Sylvester Long. A very good film of the Ojibway tribe before the arrival of
the Europeans. Some problems with the depiction, but not many.
 
They're all available on home video from us.
