German discussion about why....

non ndn's should not copy native ways/culture

it's in german but who's interested, online translation programs may do the job, at least a bit, as often not accurate

If the German were talking about powwows, it was not mentioned about powwows. If they can make their own regalia the right way which would be traditional instead of using the crazy outfits that are not traditional. White people don't know the Native perspectives as long as they are over there in Europe. The comments were very rude and not exactly correct giving us a bad names. The Whites in America made us suffered and put us through being like the White people in modern dresses and short hairs. Our lands were being taken away from us and put us into reservations all over North America.

Now the old days in the 1800 are done and things have changed a lot. We can not go back the way we were but we tried to keep our traditional powwows including our traditional cultures, Medicine Wheels and different languages. As times goes on, we might lose them all together. We are struggling to preserve our traditions so that we can teach our young people to carry on with their traditions and to pass them along to their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. We were here in Americas for many centuries. We had to suffered under them for 500 years after the white men came to the shores in North and South America.

You have no right to copy us trying to be Natives or Indians. That is your romantic notions or dreams. We all shake our heads at what you all are doing.

Spiritflight, are you going to send the messages to Germany?

I read the English translation from the German comments.

Wouldn't it be better for you to send it? Most germans speak english. And they would never accept me as a german telling them. I did hear about germans who copy ndn ways and celebrating whatever they have in mind, dressing up like ndn's being very upset and aggressive when another german comes along telling them it's not right what they are doing. Also, there are some native americans who seem to go there and be part of the events for whatever reason. Germans do not accept me anyway, I don't seem to act german enough.

I was never at one, only seen pictures online and I am sorry but it looks silly to me when those white people dress up like ndn's and say hau or do some ceremonial stuff. It does not fit, looks silly because they copy something. Mainly based on Karl May's NDN hero Winnetou and maybe with some elements of north american ndn ways, they got no Aztec Dancers as far as I know, since in my opinion those german hobbists only copy north american.... blah blah.... blah... sorry blah...

that happens here in north America too. On Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, and Cinco De Mayo. American people try to be Cupid, be an Irishman and be a Mexican.
