* Magawisca of ''Hope Leslie''. Not only does she get to save the life of Everell [[ShoutOut a la]] [[InspiredBy Pocahontas and John Smith]] (though nothing ever indicated that she falls for him -- if anything, ''he'' might have developed feelings for ''her''), but she has a rather...[[LesYay close relationship]] with the eponymous character, [[MagicalNativeAmerican who's helping to teach her]] that despite the brutal slaughter of her family and kidnapping of her sister that caused her to be [[RaisedByNatives raised among the Pequods]], the ways of the NobleSavage are not wrong and in fact have much wisdom. This may be why she gets to be a heroine in her own right.

* Subverted in ''RhymesForYoungGhouls''. Aila is statuesque, beautiful, and wears two long braids; she could easily resemble the popularized fantasy of Native American women. She also is a drug dealer and a graffiti artist; she wears hunting jackets and a gas mask when she sells drugs. Her contrasting appearance, as well as her toughness and ruthlessness, utterly contradict the docile, obedient nature of the trope.

* ''Film/InTheLandOfTheHeadHunters'': Naida, apparently the prettiest girl in the Kwakwaka'wakw tribe of British Columbia. Functions as a LivingMacGuffin--originally promised in an ArrangedMarriage to the bad guy, stolen away from the bad guy by the hero, stolen again by the bad guy's even more evil brother, finally returned to the hero in the HappyEnding.
