The first to portray the Native American as "real, not red," Fritz Scholder has been a major influence on an entire generation of Native American artists. This program films Scholder, an artist of Luiseno descent, as he takes his painting Television Indian and his lithograph Film Indian from conception to completion. His unsentimental vision and his technique-a blend of abstract expressionism, West Coast pop, and Bay Area colorism-have enabled Scholder to produce a strong body of work that realistically illustrates contemporary Native American life in the Southwest.
