Apache/Inde Community

The Coronet Productions film, like others in the collection made by Encyclopedia Brittanica, represents the post-World War II upsurge in educational filmmaking. Shot in 16mm Kodachrome, the images of Apache/Inde homelands are often quite beautiful. Such films frequently credited a professor or teacher as an authority figure, and presented a mainstream view of the People represented. While these films stand in contrast to mid-century Hollywood representations of Apache life, they do still rely upon unquestioned assumptions about Native culture in general and Apache culture in particular.

Dictionary words attributed to Western Apache were drawn from first-hand recommendation of following sources: Western Apache-English Dictionary : a Community-generated Bilingual Dictionary, http://www.native-languages.org/apache.htm#language, and https://www.omniglot.com/writing/apache.htm. Contributed by Melissa Dollman, who is a non-Apache speaker. We very much welcome community vetting of these vocabulary words, and recommendations for additional resources.
