Movie Review: The Only Good Indian: The Only Good Indian, which takes place in the early 1900s, is a poetic movie that sheds light on the crisis that was the removal of American Indian children from their homes to be placed in boarding schools where they were forced to assimilate to the white man’s view of what was “civilized” at the time. Emotional scenes depicting the treatment of the children when they attempted to rebel and when they spoke their native tongues give the viewers a sense of the truly dramatic changes American Indian children were forced to undergo.
