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.
