Indians commercialize themselves.
Many "tribes" don't have any culture at all, they steal the same popular tribal attributes of tribes that do.
There are Alaskan tribes using eagle feather head dresses duplicated from the Sioux.

Most tribes have been so thoroughly gutted culturally that they don't even remember their own history. Those that do vilify those that don't.

These white people are disgusting and beyond irritating, but unfortunately many Native Americans are full on participants in this new age horse shit.

Only white people could possibly not understand why it's inconsistent for them to co-opt a faith that requires someone to give back the equivalent of things they've taken.

My friend's crazy hillbilly uncle got initiated into an aboriginal tribe, he had to have one of his front teeth knocked out with a stick. I don't think he does seminars though.

I'd kinda like to initiate every last one of these fucking honkies. I don't if I could stop at just one tooth, though.

I imagine that every 2-3 years or so every native american gets approached by some white person who wants to learn their shaman ways, and they say "Sure you can be an official shaman but first you have to blow me then I get to kick your fucking teeth in also give me 0" and the white guy says "ok"

Dr Dim
Just making the point that white people can be involved in indigenous traditions, but it isn't all flowers and sausages.

Knocking out teeth is not unusual for aboriginal initiations. The guy is a crazy mountain man that eats roadkill, not one of these suburban hippies. He just hung around with a lot of aborigines and they decided to make it official.

My favorite part is when they excise the Indian out of it, slap on some hobbits-and-wizards thematics, and call it an Ancient Celtic Way.

How many of these self-professed "shamans" have come close enough to facing their own deaths where they could go around calling themselves that?

I actually took a class in Native American studies in college. My professor told us the story of a Russian guy that came to celebration/powwow in full feather headdress, wanting to do a rain dance, not knowing that my professor's tribe didn't participate in that particular ritual. They asked him to remove the warpaint and costume and then invited him to sit with them next to a fire and listen to them talk. They figured his heart was in the right place, but they all thought it was hilarious, they just didn't want to embarrass him.

These people have no excuse, not being from halfway around the world. I love that in none of these circumstances, any of them bothered to learn about Native Americans...directly from Native Americans. And it reminds me of cub scouts in the 50s that would go through "Native American" rituals.
