I guess Disney movies tend to offend many people for many reasons. I attended a 
workshop on evaluating materials for children from a Native American 
perspective....the stereotypes portrayed in "Peter Pan" are extremely offensive, 
also. I remember watching it and thinking how charming it was, until I started 
examining it through eyes other than mine. We can't claim it is a result of the 
times, as both "Pocahontas" and "Aladdin" also were criticized for their demeaning 
caricatures, and they are fairly recent movies. Nadine
