We saved her with a good life;
Something you see in Westerns up until the mids 70s (when they died out) is the recurring theme of the white child being found living among “indians”. Invariably the child has to be “saved” and brought back to “society” so it can have a “real” life. The script is written in such a way that the audience supports this and fevers along through all the struggles involved until the child ultimately ends up with the whites.
When it’s the other way around, however, i.e. an “indian” child living with whites, any “indians” who want the child returned are portayed as selfish, savage, violent, primitive, and uncivilized. The audience is manipulated to believe the child would be much better off growing up with the whites, away from the wild savages.
I doubt very much this mindset has changed any since then.
A number of years ago there was a “made for tv” movie on German television called “The White Masai” (2005). It was about a white woman who married a Masai and went to live with him. It was praised, especially by ohh so tolerant liberal minded Germans, as a milestone of intercultural relations. What they didn’t realize is how absolutely deeply racist the whole thing was. A white woman leaves modern Europe to go live in the African bush with a primitive, uncivilized Masai “warrior”. Sensational! How daring of her. Imagine all the things she gave up! But, would the same movie had been made if the “warrior” had dropped his “spear”, left his “hut”, and moved to Europe? Hardly. That would have been “normal”. He’d be coming to civilisation, not giving up “modern life”. I call bullshit and racism.
It only shows how whites still inherently think they’re better, even if they think they’re modern, liberal, and tolerant. And that applies to almost everybody who just read this. Yes, you too.
