The program starts at 2:00 pm and is followed by a panel discussion with the director, Red Haircrow, and three protagonists. Representing Native Americans are Johnny Clyde (Mezica / Purepecha) and Viveka Frost (Teques / Caribe), and representing an important German perspective is Sönke Bernhardi.

Tagline: “It’s time to learn. To go beyond. It’s not about Winnetou. It’s about you and us.”

Synopsis: “The same mentality that ignores the rights of indigenous people to self-expression are often those who also have stereotypes and gas light GLBTIIQ people. Women. The disabled or economically challenged, especially BIPOC, just wanting for change and equality. It’s basically saying, “My joy is more important than your dignity, your rights or even your life.”

Description:

“Almost normal.
Almost acceptable.
Almost indigenous.

Half, a quarter, a fraction, a piece.
Gender, sexuality, ethnicity, cognitive or physical abilities.

My #Interview on #WDR’s “ZeitZeichen” is now Available Online: “Indian Citizenship Act”

Red Haircrow

In German and some English, the interview conducted by Claudia Friedrich introduced or continued discussion about today’s ramifications of the Indian Citizenship Act. While many Germans and Americans downplay the relevance of this history, and choose to ignore the implications today, Eurocentric attitudes and behaviors continue to be emulated. Obviously. More people may simply be ignorant on the entire situation, because these details are ignored even as they appropriate Native cultural customs and traditions for self-gratification. We have to look deeper at the effects of such behavior, on both Natives and non-Natives, and what is the root cause. LISTEN HERE.
