LAST REAL INDIANS

This is happening now. Kind of makes your stomach turn pondering how all the museums, universities, private art collectors and other vultures got a hold of our precious items, even ceremonial objects, and created an elite “art market” where financially capable people can bid on them to show off their wealth. There is so much of our items that are in the wrong hands, making people squirm with the prospect of owning a rare piece of the Indians, fetishism, intellectual / ownership/ privilege complex, objectification, and forced appropriation. All needs to be returned to rightful owners. http://www.skinnerinc.com/news/blog/sioux-shirt-derby-collection-plains-indian-art-auction/
