Western, a term that has circulated for quite a long time in the American space, but not only that, taken by its connotation as an artistic genre, refers to the 19th century America, and more accurately, to the American Indian Wars. The American Indian Wars, while not only one event, represents a corpus of disputes and events between the European government and colonists, later known as the United States, and the different tribes of Native Americans. This dispute can be traced back to the earliest colonial settlement, and it was due to the cultural discrepancies between the two societies, various disagreements in reserve to the ownership of the land, numerous criminal cations carried by both sides continuously, and many other debated subjects that bring with themselves a lot of ambiguity. With the aid of this history, the western genre has kept some of the historical elements and transferred them, with some modifications made by reinventing some of the elements, into the artistic field, some of the historical elements that can still be seen in the western genre are the wild frontier, the constructions of railroads, large ranches, revenge stories caused by criminal activities that were taking place in the Wild West, the American Natives cavalry fighting with the European colonists, the stories about bounty hunters and outlaw gangs.
