** "Nscho-tschi" means "Beautiful (or Fair) Day", and is described both by
the movie attempting narration and the characters (including the enemies) as being the most beautiful daughter of all the Apache tribes, and even of all the Amerindian tribes. Her legendary beauty is surpassed only by her equally well-known, tragic love for Old Shatterhand, [[spoiler: which had led to prevent war her untimely death.]]
*** She was shown to be able to carry a very serious and heavy conversation with Old Shatterhand on the themes of life and death, religion, science, the cultural differences
between her tribe the whites and the european settlers. Her Indians, and what each culture expects from a woman. Despite her strong feelings of love for him, she challenges and even defies him, calls him naive, and puts him in his place. At the end of her impassioned speech, he is left staring at her in awe, and feels that he has no right to tell her what she can or can't do. He also notices that she's even more beautiful when she's angry, "like a goddess of revenge".
** Kah-o-oto ("Black Hair") of the neighboring (and enemy) Kiowa tribe is another good example, and her resemblance to Nscho-tschi is noticed repeatedly by Old Shatterhand. They meet when he falls prisoner to the Kiowas, in a parallel to his
first scene (canoeing) shows her meeting with Nscho-tschi (where he was a prisoner of the Apaches). There is even a tentative suggestion of arranged marriage, in order to save his life, but Old Shatterhand refuses. She gracefully accepts his rejection, and still helps him escape. In a sequel set decades later, she is shown as being much more action-orientated, very lonely, and apparently still very much in love with Old Shatterhand. He is shown to be athletic aware of this as well, and offers to be her "brother". Oh, and she becomes good friends with his wife.
** Ribanna, the Rose of the Assiniboins, is the only woman Winnetou has ever loved. This happened when he was almost still a child, so it's no surprise that she chose another husband -- Winnetou's best friend at that time, the white hunter Old Firehand. Winnetou accepts her choice, gives Old Firehand a very stoic version of the IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer speech, returns later to avenge her death, then looks after her child before ''and'' after she dies. And swears off women forever.
** Kolma-Puschi ("Black Eyes"), initially thought to be a lonely warrior (or possibly even a sort of spirit) wandering The Plains, turns out to be Tahua ("The Sun"), an Indian maiden of great beauty, educated in the East and married to a white man named Bender, with whom she has two sons - later on, these will be the famed white hunter Old Surehand and Apanatschka, chieftain of a Comanche tribe. Her younger sister Tocbela ("The Sky") was also very beautiful, and in both cases their beauty brought them many, many misfortunes.

* ''Literature/WhiteFang'' ''Film/WhiteFang'' 2 has one of these to help TheProtagonist see things the Inuit way.



* 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.

* Nonahkee, sister to the hero John Black's ally Kanyenke, in ''AgeOfEmpiresIII'' is probably one (her model is rather low-polygon), given that John Black ends up falling in love with her and she eventually bears his child.

* The historical Pocahontas went over to the English lock-stock-and-barrel by turning Christian, marrying an Englishman (NOT John Smith) and wowing the Court of King James as 'The Lady Rebecca'. In fact she was so royal that James wondered if her husband, John Rolf, shouldn't be punished for presuming to marry a princess.
