White Exoneration of Native Genocide

Posted by Jack Stephens on February 4, 2007

Ernest M. Whiteman III writes about the phenomenon of white men “becoming” Native Americans in Hollywood movies in  NativeVue Blog:

It’s as if the taking of a Native Identity serves two ends—the first, to exonerate the white man for the actions of his race, and secondly to assert a form of expertise about Native Americans which can only be attained from taking their identity In the  end neither serves no purpose for Natives and serves, once again, to de-power their voice and attempts at self-representation.
