New Magic for Old: TV in Cree Culture -- The Far North.
Granzberg, Gary; And Others
Journal of Communication, v27 n4 p154-57 Fall 1977
Discusses the impact of television on Cree Indians within the context of their culture. Traditional conceptions about communication cause the Cree to be susceptible to TV, take it literally, idolize the superhero characters, read special messages into it concerning behavior requirements, and to be concerned about its potential harm to children.
