Online article in Deutsch, and available as a podcast in the same. The English version of the podcast can be found at the end of the article.
Why our documentary & information is even more important and timely! Colonialism & racism is a killing and crippling disease and stereotypes and objectification are symptoms. Article by Red Haircrow regarding the Karl May Museum’s curator, Robin Leipold, February 21, 2017 “case study” release on the Native American human remains they continue to refuse to respectfully repatriate. German author Karl May created the pseudo-American Indian character/symbol “Winnetou.” Please read Leipold’s article, which many informed on decolonization have criticized for it’s inherent white privilege and supremacist assumptions and stance.
Our crowdfunding campaign continues, please help us reach our goal! Timo & Red have been researching and working on this project for years, completely out of pocket, and are trying to finish up the documentary.

We’re pleased to have Johnnie Jae as an interviewee! Speaking on Native #Stereotypes, the effects on all concerned, sure, but mostly on what Natives are doing now. What’s going on? How do Natives respond to continued misrepresentation? Why is decolonization so important?

20 Oct 2016-Introducing new team member: Natasha John, designer and photographer!
My name is Natasha John, designer and photographer. I’m from the Navajo Nation, born for the Mexican Clan in Shiprock, New Mexico, but Arizona is home. Since youth, I’ve always been surrounded by design and art. My father was a construction worker and my mother studied art history. From this upbringing I was able to see both sides of the creative spectrum: the technical and the artistic. My father, often lacking a babysitter, would sneak me onto construction sites and my mother would share her art books with me. Ultimately, this lead me to where I am today. I now spend half my year in Berlin, Germany working as Freelance Designer and the other half with my family in Phoenix, AZ, re-embracing and re-learning my roots through photography.
Production meetings continue!
