Couldn't watch the second video without laughing. Here we go with more romanticism of native "history" and culture.

The creator of the second video states that her "short film is an interpretation of the strong links between the Native, the buffalo, and the Great Spirit, and a young warrior's yearning for the return of times past" and naturally, this is how a lot (if not most) outsiders see us. These days, it just makes me chuckle. Don't think I know a single native, warrior or otherwise, who looks like this.


If I had any camera presence whatsoever, I'd make a video called the "Life and Times of an Ndn Economist", just to balance out all the mystic clutter that seems to spew from people's orifices the second the hear the term 'native american'. Mind you, that video would probably involve 5 hours of footage of me staring at spreadsheets, cursing and showing coworkers pictures of my cats.
