Indeed. They're using a euro-appearing person (not to mention bordering on anorexic) to represent dark ethnic native Americans, who look nothing like this (and are much more diverse than this stereotyped photo). And not all native Americans had feather headsets, it's a very overreaching photo, and very stereotypical. ):

can we not call girls the names of eating disorders just because of their weight though? -_- thats messed up too.

Yeah I get your point. Still, their entire gallery is filled with overly thin people. One of those people is bound to have an eating disorder, especially since they're in the modeling industry where disorders like that are rampant, but yeah I get your point :nod:

ok eating disorders aren't actually reflected by bodyweight at all, a person of any gender and any weight can have one, and it's mean and unhelpful to anyone to affiliate weight with illness :\ being skinny doesnt automatically mean you have an eating disorder any more than being fat would mean you automatically have diabetes

I agree. I'm just saying in the modeling industry is where eating disorders are rampant. Not people as a whole based just on the weight, just in the modeling industry. :hmm:

uh-huh, well going 'she's a model so she obviously has an eating disorder' is still a completely unnecessary comment and not helping solve any problems either. the model existing isn't the problem with this photo and there's literally no reason to jump to conclusions about her body and her health, the problem is the racist overtones.

This is a beautiful photo, but being Cherokee I am on the fence about the misuse of the headdress. It's quite a pity about the genocide that our government is still committing against my people...

I agree (and American Indians didn't clip their horses coats either...lol, that is purely English in nature)
Any sort of misuse is like laughing at your people. :hug:

This is kind of racist! And disrespectful! Headdresses are sacred religious and cultural items and it's inappropriate to wear or use them unless you're earned the right to do so. Also, people's identities aren't costumes and shouldn't be treated as such.

In conclusion, this photo is nice and all, but quite immoral ethically... So it's basically like every other fashion shoot ever. Nice job! You're super offensive!

@Blackplume, American Indian isn't even a real term, so you're wrong. It's Native American/Canadian or Aboriginal. It's a little less offensive now but it's more aggravating that some people are stupid enough to listen to a moron like Columbus. And even besides that, they straight up AREN'T Indian lol.... just so stupid

I've been Indian, American Indian, Native American or Native Canadian, Aboriginal - doesn't matter, You are wrong, wrong to think you and this irresponsible photo can define me and the cultural and people I come from.

"I've been.." Okay so you can change nationalities?? WTF are you trying to say?
Did I even TRY to "define" you or natives? They are called Natives by the way moron..
You're like what 3%? Yes it matters and you would know that if you were Native, Indian is a
term used exclusively by fucking moronic douchebags.

You are wrong. <3

Telling an Indigenous person he is wrong, for something he has grown up with, no fuck you, you are the reason I label this, or that. You and every white person who thinks they know better.

Just because you grew up being called an Indian doesn't make it right genius, you sound like a fucking house negro. You don't need to make the white man feel any better for ruining your culture, what is wrong with you? Oh and I'm not white I just despise self hating members of ANY race. So how about you smarten the fuck up and realize Natives AREN'T fucking Indian.

LOL Smarten the fuck up. You are a house negro because you call yourself indian, your not even owning it, it's like me calling myself NIGGER. I would be fucking retarded, just like you lmfao. I know my history, now go root for the redskins kiddo, obviously you don't know shit. Do you eat curry and work in tech support? NO? Then you aren't a FUCKING INDIAN YOU FUCKING IDIOT.

How exactly is this "American Indian"? American Indian is a generalized term relating to actual living, breathing people, who are most definitely not white and do not disrespect cultural items.
