Waterloo Centre for German Studies invites you to a screening of "Searching for Winnetou" and discussion with Drew Hayden Taylor.
There is a peculiar relationship between Germany (and other European countries) and the First Nation people of North America. It all goes back to the writings of Karl May, a 19th century author who created one of the most popular characters in German literature, Winnetou. During Mr. Taylor's 16 lectures in Germany, he was confronted by the legacy of these real and imaginary people. And as a First Nation man, it made an impression on him. On his 17th trip, he took a film crew and documented this phenomenon. This is the result.
