LAST REAL INDIANS

From Donald Duck to the Wooster group: Di$ney Imperialism Propaganda Hidden in Plain Sight, By Dani Miller

Depicting Natives as nothing but a redfaced, obedient sidekick is racist. Let’s not forget that Tonto translates to “stupid or foolish.” Can’t get anymore obvious than that, Disney. It’s the year 2014 and Native caricatures continue; Lone Ranger has even been nominated for best makeup for the Oscars! If this isn’t a blatant display of how Hollywood feels about Natives then I don’t know what more proof anyone needs. Even if this is a result of ignorance, this shows how dire it is that America to reform their education system and improve their relationship with Native Americans.

If you really want to learn about Natives we are here, just as we always have been. Check out 562 Project for pictures of natives without stereotypes. Twitter user @whattribe has also been active in sharing native photography and protesting #NotyourTonto since the beginning of #notyourmascot hashtag.

During the twitterstorm yesterday many natives participated in #notyourtonto. Late last night word from twitter spread of The Wooster Group in Disney/CalArts Theater putting on a play of blatant redface and “reimagining” or committing a triggering reenactment US genocide.
