Chris Eyre is a native American independent filmmaker. Some of his films are based on the books by Sherman Alexie and Tony Hillerman. At the same time, Eyre adapts American mainstream film genres (road movies, sport movies) in order to revise cinematic representations of the native Americans. The author of this article analyses such films as Smoke Signals, The Edge of America, Skinwalkers and We Shall Remain, trying to define the role and meaning of different adaptation strategies in Eyre’s works. In Smoke Signals and The Edge of America the director pictures and discusses the most important issues of modern Indian identity. In this context his films seem to prove that the dominant cinematic representations of native Americans are changing.
