Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Several staff members and students in anthropology and Indian Studies programs at Iowa State University had the opportunity to view the film, The Last of the Caddoes, during the spring of 1984. The University's Media Resource Center had obtained the film on approval and sought our advice as to whether it should be purchased for on campus classroom use and for rental to interest groups off campus. The film came with a respectable-looking pedigree: it was based on a short story by William Humphrey, an author of considerable repute in Texas; it was produced by Ken Harrison with funding from the Texas Committee for the Humanities, a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities; and it was being distributed by Phoenix Films whose flyer advertised the film's subject area as "American Indian Folklore and Literature, Anthropology, Language Arts-Secondary, Social Studies, Guidance-Secondary, Homelife."
