Indians

The Pohatchee chase the DeLorean.

"INDIANS!!!"
—Marty McFly

The Pohatchee was a tribe of Native Americans that inhabited the Hill Valley area in the 19th century. Historically, the tribe was not friendly to settlers and quite often killed them.[1] They used both arrows and guns.[2] It is unknown if they scalped their victims.[3]

In 1885, Marty McFly drove the DeLorean time machine directly into the path of one hundred Pohatchee[4] pursued by U.S. Cavalry troops. He narrowly escaped both groups, only to find that he had ripped the fuel line.

Behind the scenes

  • The Pohatchee Indian tribe is fictional, and is referred to only in Craig Shaw Gardner's novelization. The theater, with an American Indian theme, was called the Pohatchee Drive-In, but the Indians themselves were not identified. Monument Valley, where the drive-in and the Indian chase scenes were filmed, is located on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Utah. Those scenes are the only ones in the trilogy that were not filmed in California.
