i hate to break it to you ..but you are NOT native american

i'm going to get real bossy right now:
let me start by saying this- i like wearing feathers in my hair as much as the next gal.... but i am getting really riled up lately by whity white pants dressing up like natives for super cool fashion reasons...and making paintings that are about totem poles and eagle magic.... and again- i say this with a love of eagle magic..but it's not mine... i can't flex it...cuz i'm white.
don't you think natives have  had it bad enough ...having your land stolen.. being lied to ..stripping your cultural and religious identity...forcing foods on you that give your entire race incurable diseases... murder... rape and the fucking list goes on.... now you are fetishising them and making moccasins, beads and headdresses your latest "get funky get drunky" outfit.                                            i will call it the "neon native" .... and i will cut your face
i really understand the intrigue and curiosity these ass wipes have with native culture.. i would go so far to say that i share it...but i think shit like this is super duper totally nasty.... 

didn't anyone ever tell you playing cowboys and indians is RUDE.... especially with weird underpants on
there's a way to give a "what what" to native culture...like getting a dream catcher tattoo in a place where your bathing suit covers...

or going to a pow wow and supporting natives by buying the cool stuff that they make


.....and then there is a way to barf it up roll in it and set it on fire.... cut it out dudes...i have mace and i don't care if you have always wanted to fuck pocahontas!

how did you find these pictures, by googling "I would like to barf"?

also you are way more tolerant that me...if I went home with someone (white) and discovered a dream catcher tattoo in their swimsuit area? There would be a me-shaped cloud of dust where I previously stood, roadrunner/coyote style.

i have to admit...i have encountered a worse hidden N.A tattoo.... it was a naked luxuriously posed native woman with long braids wrapped up in a dream catcher!!! i think a dagger was involved too..it's hazy... but i let it slide cuz the dude was half chinook. in retrospect i should have jumped out the window immediately.
