"In science fiction shows, the aliens who encounter and/or interact with ''American Indians' are usually non -earthlings (thought generally pretty humanoid in appearance, who assist the 'Indians' in some manner or receive survival, spiritual, or supernatural help from the 'Indians'."
Native Americans:
meet w/humanoid aliens
are helped OR give help
"Native American cultures and people belonged to the interminable wasteland of humanity's dark and stormy beginnings. The Indian's worth as human beings was determined by their usefulness as a counterpoint to the unfolding of progress of the ages."
