Whats the stupiest thing anyone has told you about Indians?

Not including the where we came from stuff, what is the dumbest thing you have been told about or asked if it was true?
I've been told that ndn men don't go bald, have hairless chests, ect.. I look at them and say and you know this how?

Well......where I work, we encounter many tourists and other visitors. One comment that I hear so often is, "I'm part Indian myself. Can't you tell by my high cheekbones?" Then I have to go into a discussion that there are over 500 tribes in the U.S. and Canada and NOT everyone has the same features.

Had a man ask once, "So i hear indians don't pay taxes and that's how they run the casinos right?" from the wife of this man came"is it true that they have an indian in room that makes up all the street names in america?"

just goes to show how stupid people shouldn't breed.

to many to list. I've heard every sterotype from my non-native friends. sad but true, very true! but if i had to name one, someone asked me to show him "my" dance. and he started jumping around and doing the 50's tv hand to mouth, whoop. i told him he must think he's a women, cause thats what whites back in the old days whould see and hear native women do. lulu! and they had to use their hand to make "their" stupid noise. how stupid!! :0

I've had all the usual "stupid" questions from people at work. One came to a local pow wow and asked me "why don't ALL the dancers wear leather, isn't that what Indians make their clothes out of?" (one word..........WALMART)

A friend of mine has this white guy that everytime he see's her at a pow wow, he runs up and asks her if she could interpert his dreams. haha
Everytime we see him, we all do a 180 and head the other way!

Yeah, every time my dad heard that about not going bald or being able to have facial hair/beard he would look at my hubby and go I wish. My hubbys bald spot is getting bigger by the day and dad had the WORSE comb over you have seen. We're talking Donald Trump bad comb over.

That one used to really get my mammaw going! She would grab the person by the arm and in her best "teachers" voice give them a hisotry lesson they wouldn't soon forget! After seeing and hearing her do it a couple of times I started to understand why her former students talked about being afraid to mess up in her classes.

Try this one on....

A black person recently asked me "What is your nationality?" My response was "American Indian." They said "WHAT?!? I thought Indians were extinct?" I thought they were joking!!! But they weren't! They really thought we didn't exist anymore! Sick hey?


Oh, and about the hairless/balding thing...it does have some truth to it...probably about 95% of the full blooded men in this country don't have any chest hair, and I would GUESS aren't balding either. But that's NOT to say it doesn't happen....LOL!

Not to have chest hair or to bald is quite cool actually.

But the most dumb thing I heard was that once, a person asked me if all Native Americans look like Karl May's Winnetou.

About: "How"

I've heard all the countless stupid questions throughout my life as well. But one of the things that really gets me is when someone asks you nationality and you tell them Native American and their response back to you is HOW! Man do I hate that! I started telling people who did that that that meant they were stupid. Anyone else totally annoyed by this?
