Science-fiction renders many representations of various ethnic groups. Authors find inspiration in human cultures to create imaginary worlds and characters, but also try to represent what they know of these cultures through their writing. Last week I wrote briefly about some such representations of indigenous peoples in science-fiction.
As I announced on Monday, this week I will be sharing science-fiction material which relies on representations of indigenous peoples or seems inspired by them. The list will be updated as I identify more such material. I will be analyzing some of these episodes next week. Should you wish to watch them, I know X-Files and Stargate SG-1 are available on Netflix. They offer a one month free trial. Enjoy!
