what do you guys think is the best portrayal of Native American's in pop culture? I'm really curious because I just don't know what I can trust to offer a decent portrayal of their culture and people from it.
Only two movies come to mind, made by Natives, of course.
Smoke Signals and a movie by and about First Nations people Rhymes for Young Ghouls
“My practice is collaborative and research-based. I am in pursuit of an on-going excavation of historical Native American imagery and material culture. I like to bring these “artifacts” to life in a contemporary visual arts context.” –@wendyredstar. 💯 We talked with the 2016 #BettyBowenAward winner, to discuss her art and creative process. 👉 Tap our #LinkInProfile to read the full interview.

fyi non-natives wearing moccasins isnt cultural appropriation but if you want moccasins you should definitely be buying them from natives. otherwise youre creating profit for the white people who were/are trying to exterminate us.
Because you may have Native blood, but do you have the heart to pump it?
If a person of colour tells you that what you’re wearing is offensive then don’t wear it.
Disclaimer: This comic only applies to those [“you” meaning those who wear headdresses where it does not apply to them or their culture, hense cultural appropriation]or have in some way done offense in the term of cultural appropriation and this post was created specifically for said people in order to perhaps gain a better understanding of why cultural appropriation is offensive to many Native Americans [and to whom it applies within any person of colour] and strictly for educational purposes. This post does not mean to offend those who have done some sort of act of unintentional offense to Native Americans in the past by means of cultural appropriation and presently understand the offense that was made and regret it.
white people, who intend to use (dreadlocks, tribal tattoos, afros, “chola inspired makeup”, mehndi, bindis, sugar skulls, hula skirts, sombreros, intentional darker shades of foundation, Native American headdresses, Historical PoC icons etc…) in their Halloween costume, Please get away from me. Culture is not a costume, be something yours for once on Halloween. Looking for something funny as a costume? Donald Trump, he’s a joke be him for Halloween. Looking for something cute? A mermaid, they’re mystical. Please respect other people’s cultures, don’t appropriate, then ask why we(PoC) are hostile towards you. Do not mock one of the important things in our lives.
