* ''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.

Added DiffLines:

* The movies based on the stories of Creator/KarlMay (see under literature) were little better in that regard. Being [[CaliforniaDoubling shot in Croatia]] did little to help. The DefaWesterns inspired by the West-German Karl May movies at least tried to portray real historic characters and events, but were not shot anywhere close to the real US either, for obvious reasons.[[note]] The DEFA being an East German company during the cold war and all[[/note]]

* The works of 19th century writer Literature/KarlMay are the uber-example of this trope for anyone who learned to read in German as a kid. Despite never having been to the then still Wild West himself[[note]] presumably because he spent several years in prison for fraud[[/note]], he wrote vivid first-person accounts of "his" encounters with NobleSavage Apache Literature/{{Winnetou}}.
