Director Red Haircrow was in studio at Deutschlandradio Kultur‘s radio show “Kompressor” talking about our documentary and crowdfunding campaign, and the continuing rise of indigenous resistance, which was sparked by the Standing Rock camps against the Dakota Access Pipeline. 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!

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?
