leather and feather epic
 n.— «According to Montgomery, the joke in the native community is that every movie that comes out about Native Americans features roles that are, well, rather predictable. In other words, they might as well be pulled from a decades-old history textbook. “They refer to them as “leather and feather’ epics where they get to grunt and groan,” Montgomery said with a laugh in a recent phone interview.» —“Ab-Original Collaboration” by Mike Ward Richmond.com Nov. 29, 2006.
