Exposing Fraudulent Indians

Feb 20, 2012

Tue. 2/21 11a: Have you ever been somewhere, like a powwow, and someone seems to be pushing the Native envelope way beyond belief?

Does your inner monologue shout, “You’re not Indian!” as they walk by? As a Native, what do you do in an instant like this? Do you call that person out? Do you follow custom by being polite?

Just what do you do when a fraudulent Indian is on the scene? How do their actions insult generations of customs and beliefs? What about when they make a dollar off of Native culture?

Guests include Sal Serbin (Assiniboine Sioux) Chairman/Florida Fraudulent Native American Task Force.
