Alliances and Betrayals: "Indians", NDNs, Irish and Irish-Americans

"There is a racist band of white Irishmen calling themselves "The Indians". They perform in face paint, fake war bonnets and similar costumes, and have misappropriated the names of honored NDN ancestors as their stage names. We have been blogging and tweeting about them, posting on their Facebook page, and reporting their page as racist."

Please, everyone I urge you to read this Facebook Note and share it on your page. We need to spread the word and show people we do NOT support people who commit cultural appropriation and blatant racism.
