* The trope was to a large extent first codified in the works of [[Literature/TheLeatherstockingTales James Fenimore Cooper]] which stress how much the Indians - both [[ProtagonistCenteredMorality "heroic" and "villainous" ones]] are attuned to their environment. Although his writings may [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny not be to the tastes of many modern readers]], they were [[FairForItsDay very progressive for the time]] and earned Cooper a lot of hate e. g. from politicians who then set in motion the displacement of Native Americans from their home. The popularity of MarkTwain's attempt at literary patricide, [[http://xroads.virginia.edu/~hyper/hns/indians/offense.html "Fenimore Cooper's Literary Offenses"]], did not help.

* In ''Anime/Acca13TerritoryInspectionDept'', Rokkusu District has shades of this. The landscape appears southwestern, and the district's Acca branch uniforms look more like some form of native dress than like regular police uniforms. As for how this relates to the rest of Dowa Kingdom, well... [[MST3KMantra that isn't really explained]].

* ''Film/DancesWithWolves'' has both extreme flavors of the trope. The Pawnee tribe is purely malevolent, slaughtering a harmless white man for entering their land. The Lakota tribe, however, are proud, noble, far superior to the madness of white society, and tragically doomed. Many Lakota were not happy about being portrayed as helpless innocents in need of a MightyWhitey.

* ''Renegade'' (aka ''{{Blueberry}}'') features a white lawman who was adopted into an Indian tribe in his youth. He lives with one foot in his white frontier town and one foot in Injun Country. Indians are portrayed as wise and mystical people whose knowledge of hallucinogens ultimately allows the hero to achieve a climactic epiphany.

* In ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'', Pawnee was founded in Injun Country. Many of the [[DeliberateValuesDissonance flagrantly unpolitically correct murals]] in city hall depict the brutal confrontations between the settlers and the Indians. In one episode, Leslie gets in trouble with the local tribe by trying to hold a fair on tribal land. The tribal chief scares her with the threat of an Indian curse while privately laughing about how white people always fall for that kind of nonsense.
