Lost silent film with all-Native American cast found

The Daughter of Dawn, an 80-minute feature film, was shot in July of 1920 in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge near Lawton, southwest Oklahoma. It was unique in the annals of silent film (or talkies, for that matter) for having a cast of 300 Comanches and Kiowas who brought their own clothes, horses, tipis, everyday props and who told their story without a single reference to the United States Cavalry. It was a love story, a four-person star-crossed romance that ends with the two main characters together happily ever after. There are two buffalo hunt sequences with actual herds of buffalo being chased down by hunters on bareback just as they had done on the Plains 50 years earlier.

The male lead was played by White Parker; another featured female role was played by Wanada Parker. They were the son and daughter of the powerful Comanche chief Quanah Parker, the last of the free Plains Quahadi Comanche warriors. He never lost a battle to United States forces, but, his people sick and starving, he surrendered at Fort Sill in 1875. Quanah was the son of Comanche chief Peta Nocona and Cynthia Ann Parker, the daughter of Euro-American settlers who had grown up in the tribe after she was kidnapped as a child by the Comanches who killed her parents. She was the model for Stands With a Fist in Dances with Wolves.

You can watch the first ten minutes of the film here. It is over 90 years old, and was produced by, directed by, and stars only Native American people.

My thing is, have sex whenever you decide to want to have sex. You want to have sex on the first night, go ahead. You want to have sex after 20 dates, go ahead. You want to never have sex, go ahead. People think that someone’s sexual choices actually coincide with their personality. If all you can think of someone’s worth is whether they want to have sex or not, then the problem is probably you.

this is objectively a shitton of projection but do you know what is messing me up about this even beyond just the general overload about louis playing with a baby is that this is on TWO SEPARATE OCCASIONS louis pretending with a baby girl that she can punch someone out and i don’t know, my brother did that a lot with his son— fake roughhousing oh my god you can beat me you’re so strong!!!!!!!!— but not his daughter, like there was a hugely noticeable shift, because that’s not how we think about girls. 

but louis— TWICE— makes a little baby girl laugh with how strong she is, and he’s playing with her, but that play is also him teaching her to think of her baby body as powerful and active. like he is LITERALLY showing her that she can make a fist, that she doesn’t have to let people close to her, that she can push people back. play is how you teach babies to begin conceiving of their bodies and spaces, of their own capabilities, and oh my god louis knows about babies, louis knows about baby girls
look it’s just that the horsing around and teasing you and teaching you to fight him back isn’t i think something that louis only uses to protect and encourage his male bandmates. he already knew how to do all that. louis growing up with sisters is so so so important to me, louis knows how rough the world is and maybe he doesn’t always know how to be nice or soft but he’s on your side and if you make him strong well he’s gonna give all that strength back to you.

An amazing night!!!

Couldn’t have had a better intro.

Sean [Maher] told me on this day that he was having an enormous amount of fun because he had never played a villain. And I found that incomprehensible because he is far too handsome to be a good person. — Joss Whedon, Much Ado About Nothing director’s commentary (via showyoumyfavoriteobsession)
