Forget Winnetou! Loving in the Wrong Way

Request a copy of “Forget Winnetou! Loving in the Wrong Way” for your university, organization or screening event today!

Summary: “The same mentality that ignores indigenous rights to self-representation are often those who also stereotype and gaslight GLBTIIQ people, women, the disabled or economically challenged, especially people of color just for desiring change and equality. It is basically saying, “My gratification is more important than your dignity, your rights or even your life.” This is a main facet of rape culture. It is intersecting oppression.

“When I Think About #America” – A Personal & Societal Perspective on #Politics #History #Racism from a #BIPOC

At Medium. com…. with hastags #politics #immigration #UShistory #equality.

Red Haircrow

“When I think about America, I think of the multi-millions of Indigenous peoples who were killed, who were raped, who had their children ripped from their arms or who died from diseases deliberately introduced. I think of the African peoples torn from their lands, their cultures, their professions and histories, drowning in the ocean, suffocating in a press of bodies, beaten bloody beneath a burning sun, being sold and treated worse than animals. These are my ancestors.

When I think about America, I think of the incoming immigrants, the settlers, the European peoples who were abused, misused, demeaned and struggling in their own homelands, who heard the promise of land and a better life and came….”

Screening on Oct. 14th at the 16th Annual #Indigenous Film & Art in #Denver

Red Haircrow

We’re pleased to finally make it public, we’ll be screening in Denver, Colorado on October 14th at the Indigenous Film & Art Festival! It’s organized by the International Institute for Indigenous Resource Management, and the host organization is History Colorado Center. I very much appreciate having our documentary screened by a Native group in the USA, who recognizes that stories and situations like these for Native North Americans are important, too, even when they are happening abroad. The event itself takes place over several days, with many great films and discussions planned, which are largely open to the public and free of charge.  Please do visit their websites, and try to help support them in the important work.

Please check out their event pages at their site and on FACEBOOK to see the full line up of great films, speakers and presentations.

2.6. 1924: Indian Citizenship Act

While I 100% support Native peoples telling their own history, instead of yet another non-Native giving their European perspective on Indigenous people, here’s an interview featuring myself and others on topics of racism, stereotyping and the Eurocentricism behind the Indian Citizenship Act. What are the lessons applicable right now, as the genocide and erasure of Native peoples is on-going, to the detriment of all.
