"I'm Just Honoring Your Culture!" The Complicated -- and Continued -- History of Appropriation of Native Culture

Description: Native American imagery is woven throughout pop culture, from pseudo-Navajo textile patterns on clothing, to headdresses worn by sports fans and music festival-goers across the country. What does this imagery say about American culture, American history, and the commodification of Indigenous cultures? Why is this problematic? Charlene Teters, artist, academic dean of the Institute of American Indian Arts and founding board member of the National Coalition on Racism in Sports and the Media, will share her experiences combating cultural appropriation and stereotyping of Native peoples. Prof. Norman Akers (Visual Art), Dr. Robert Warrior (American Studies/English), and Joshua Falleaf (Haskell Dept. of English) will join her on the panel. We welcome the audience to engage in a thoughtful discussion of the issues. Free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Indigenous Studies program and the departments of American Studies, English, History, and Visual Art. Submitted by: Brandy Ernzen KU Indigenous Studies program
