Monday! Join our discussion on Identity and Misconceptions of Native Americans in our Culture
Zoom Mon, Nov 27 @ 7PM
Perceptions of Native Americans are often shaped by sports mascots,
advertisements and characters on TV and in the movies — think of Pocahontas, Tonto from
the Lone Ranger and
the animated warriors who appeared in Hanna-Barbera cartoons. These
misrepresentations are harmful and ignore the diversity of indigenous
people and their rich cultures and heritages.
In honor of Native American Heritage Month, this month’s Standing in Solidarity
program is about Native American identity and how best to preserve and share
that identity. Our PSEG
True Diversity Film Series selection is Reel Injun, a
documentary about the depictions of Native Americans in Hollywood films.
