And Then There is the Hollywood Indian Princess
Gail Tremblay, of Onondaga (upstate New York) and Mi'kmaq (northeastern New England) heritage, is a writer and artist who has lived and worked in the Pacific Northwest since the 1960s. Since 1981 she has taught at The Evergreen State College, where she first began using recycled film from student projects to make baskets in the fancy stitch style of native northeastern tribes. Tremblay explains that she enjoyed the irony of using film in basket-weaving as a way to regain control over a medium that has historically been used to stereotype American Indians. Her titles often reference the content of the film itself and comment upon the misrepresentation of indigenous people.
