My paper is making me so utterly disgusted that I think I have to call it a night.... I'm seriously sick of reading about Native stereotypes and how clueless people (and even I am) are of a lot of the stuff. Found out tonight while writing about Indian in the Cupboard that photographers would have Native Americans they were photographing wear war bonnets or hold peace pipes (even if they weren't a part of their culture) to make them look more "Indian." Wtf? Thank you very much assholes for making everyone think that we're all like the Plains Indians. No. That's as ridiculous as saying that the Germans look like the Chinese....

A Seneca headdress looks like this:



NOT this (which is Cherokee btw):



See German vs Chinese. asdkfjhakgshkgjkhagd

Wait, so the Germans wear Seneca headdresses and the Chinese wear Cherokee? Interesting... I did not know that! Thanks for enlightening me Danielle!
