Two New Documentaries on Native Stereotypes & German Cultural Appropriation-Ours Hits the Reality for Natives

For those of you in Canada, you should be able to check out this documentary debuting on Jan. 28th on CBC Docs. It follows Drew Hayden Taylor’s “search” in Germany on the “why” of hobbyism. I was invited to write a counter-point essay that will be published next week at CBC, and have a small part in the film.

Our film, which is the “flip side”, on natives living Germany, the repercussions and realities of how appropriation and Native stereotypes heavily affects their life, etc. very different from occasional visitors or contract performers, debuts on Feb. 11th. Forget Winnetou- A Documentary Film at the Delphi Theater in Berlin.
