Talk: Winnetou and Old Shatterhand. German Settlers in the Americas, and Popular German Mythologies of "the Indian" and Indigenous Realities

Every child in Germany grows up with Winnetou and Old Shatterhand – the fictional Apache Chief and his German Settler friend, invented by bestselling novelist Karl May in the late 19th century.  The talk takes a serious look at the relationship between fact and fiction, at the history of German settlements in the Americas, and at the lives of Native Americans past and present.
