1995 was kind of a big year for Native Americans in film since that is also the year The Indian in the Cupboard was released. Following in the footsteps of her predecessors, Pocahontas took the Academy Award for Best Original Score and Best Original Song with "Colors of the Wind." Although the writers utilized some creativity and fabrication in this historical film, the film did teach us an important thing: we aren't the only one's on this land. Pocahontas was teaching us to be environmentally conscious as children. Historical inaccuracies aside, the film was great.
