* ''Literature/BloodMeridian'' by Creator/CormacMcCarthy (recently of ''Literature/NoCountryForOldMen'' fame) deconstructs this trope with what might be thought of as a ''meta'' revisionist historical Injun Country, where, not to put too fine a point on it, all humans of all colours and cultures are essentially between one and zero steps removed from the dishonourable, brutal naked savage stereotype. Very adroitly {{deconstructed}} by the author in order to make a case for BlueAndOrangeMorality.[[note]]Noted for its historical accuracy. Food for thought.[[/note]]

Very adroitly {{deconstructed}} second band, led by Glanton and the author in order to make judge, carves a case for BlueAndOrangeMorality.[[note]]Noted for its historical accuracy.

* 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]]

Added DiffLines:

* The Indians are a background threat through most ''Film/CanyonPassage'', with rumours of attacks and deaths filtering in to town. Then Bragg provokes them into a full-scale uprising. Interestingly, early on Dance observes that the land was originally the Indians' and that folks would do well to remember that in their dealings with them: an enlightened sentiment for both the time the movie is set ''and'' the time it was made.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheBigTrail'', starring a young Creator/JohnWayne, centers on a settler's wagon train that has to make it through Injun Country. In one scene Wayne talks the train past a band of Cheyenne by promising not to settle in their territory (they're headed for Oregon). In another scene the train isn't so lucky, and they have to circle the wagons and fend off another band of Indians.

* ''Disney/PeterPan'' portrays Injun Country as dangerous, but ultimately the Indians are more sympathetic than the dastardly white pirates. The Indians have both teepees and totem poles, but they're in a MagicalLand to the begin with.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTailFievelGoesWest'', Tiger the cat gets randomly kidnapped by Native American mice when he wanders into their territory, and they prepare to roast him alive. But, when they see his resemblance to a nearby mountain, they start to worship him as a god.

* In the film ''Film/ThreeTenToYuma'', the party passes through Injun Country and gets attacked at night by some fairly stereotypical braves, who are barely visible in the darkness.

* In ''Anime/Acca13TerritoryInspectionDept'', Rokkusu District has shades of this. The landscape appears southwestern, and the district's Acca branch uniforms look more like [[http://imgur.com/a/Lu1iY some]] [[http://imgur.com/a/kv3xP 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]].
