From de.wikipedia.org: Der Schuh des Manitu, eine 2001 entstandene Parodie der Karl-May-Verfilmungen der 1960er Jahre, gilt mit 11,7 Millionen Besuchern und 65 Millionen Euro Umsatz an den Kinokassen als einer der erfolgreichsten deutschen Filme seit Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs.

This is not actually a parody if America nor a parody of Native Americans. It’s parody of German stereotypes of America and Native Americans as they were portrayed by Mark May. His depictions may not have been very accurate, but they were most influential to the German imagination. This imagination spawned the Winetou films from the 1960s. Now these are, what the parody is about.
