Response to mountain grammy (Reply #4)

Sat Mar 21, 2015, 12:39 PM

53. That song

 

is full of racist stereotypes. Yuck.

And unless you're an enrolled tribal member, bragging about your "Indian blood" is part of the same tradition of casual erasure of real Native people in favor of mythologies, stereotypes, and appropriations.

The girl in the photo is a white man's fantasy of an exotic "Indian maid" in nature. In reality she was witness to the genocide of her people.

National Geographic is the Riefenstahl of that genocide.
