sorry....i know thats harsh....and i know that some indians dont feel that way....BUT MOST DO

we dont mind you guys admiring us, or observing us.....but what we do hate and laugh at is you trying to become us........so put down the regalia and go buy some corn soup and get your azz in the bleachers
I heard we're real big in Germany. I talked with a Pamunkey today and she told me that the Germans even have fake tribes of Indians. she also told me that a good many 'Native American' internet communities and their are out of Deutschland. I would pay good Yankee dollars to see them goose step in moccasins.

The real answer to the original question is highly complex and has not one but many sources. The biggest culprit for cultural misinformation on any race or ethnicity is HOLLYWOOD. In the context of this thread it's old Westerns, Dances With Wolves, Last Of The Mohicans etc. Couple that with poorly written and researched text books and the broken education system here and you've got a perfect storm for stuff like this to brew in.

Also with the way we consume styles and fads in this country as well as the developed world it doesn't take but a few people showing off the wolf motif and calling it Indian art work for it to catch on.

On a final note here - We have received many complaints from both participants and non-participants about this thread. This thread has turned into fighting and ad hominem attacks. So with the power vested in me by Powwows.com I hereby am CLOSING this thread.

If everyone feels as if we need to continue this topic please feel free to start a new one... and folks, please try to be civil.
