Rincewind53: Celebration of ones own heritage is not what's at issue

Yeah, everyone that was at Wurstfest dressed up drinking beer and shoveling sausages and schnitzels into their faces last month were German. My bad.

1) You were the one said "celebrating their heritage." Stick to your fact pattern, please.

2) How can you be so obtuse that you can't recognize the difference between celebrating a culture respectfully and exploiting and co-opting one for financial and social benefits?


Did someone mention exploiting and co-opting a culture for financial and social benefits?

I think one of the big differences is Oktoberfest celebrates the "fun" parts of German culture (drinking, food, and parties). Most of the Native American things I've seen make fun of their religion, paint the Native Americans as uneducated drunks, and celebrate their genocide.

I doubt many Jewish people would think it was funny if the Germans all got together for a fest mocking their religion. They could call it Holofest.

Why, in every discussion by whites about American Indians, are the U.S. Immigrants of European ancestry always collectively referred to as 'the white man?" I see it online and hear it in conversations. And always by whites.

They make it sound as though there was one single white man ... the white man, in fact ... who went around causing all the problems of all the Indian nations. It makes me think, why didn't somebody just shoot the sumbiatch so the rest of us could start getting along already?

Indians don't, for the most part (unless they're pulling your leg) talk like the ones in the old cowboy movies. No one 'speaks with forked tongue'- they lie through their teeth. Something isn't 'heap big', it's farkin' huge or a metric buttload. They have wives and girlfriends, not "squaws"; kids, not "papooses." At least among all the various Indians I've met. They pretty much talk like everyone else.

If they want a celebration of their culture, I'm totally fine with it. If they want it to be popular, well, it needs to involve booze. Look at the major nationality/religion holidays..St. Pat's, Octoberfest, Cinco de Mayo, Mardi Gras, 4th of July....all of them fun. Hell, you could probably add Christmas to that list. Now, look at the ones that aren't fun/popular (I'm looking at you, Kwanzaa). Whats missing?

Yes, because everyone dressing up for St. Patrick's Day is of Irish heritage.


And the traditional Irish green bowler hat, fake red beard, and green dyed beer isn't in the least bit offensive. It's not like the Irish are a proud people who've been oppressed by English speakers in the past or anything.

dugitman: FTFA: According to congressional findings of the  2010 Tribal Law & Order Act    , 34% of American Indian and Alaska Native women will be raped; 39% will be subjected to domestic violence. That is more than twice the national average. In addition, the 2008 study by the  National Institute of Justice suggests that on some reservations, Native women are murdered at more than 10 times the rate of their non-native counterparts.
In the past year, Native advocacy leaders have made a push to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act in Congress. The law would empower tribes for the first time to seek justice against non-Indian offenders.
 
I know next to nothing about this subject, but it seems counterintuitive that violence against NA women is being overwhelmingly committed by non-NA men. Is her point that: fetishizing the NA image in entertainment has spilled over onto the reservations and created a misogynistic environment in the NA community? Because I thought that environment has been there all along.


I was taught that the NA cultures were matrilineal. Maybe the violence is a result of placing a group of people in a human petting zoo?
