Storyline

The same mentality that ignores indigenous rights to self-representation are often those who also stereotypes and gaslight GLBTIIQ people, women's rights, the disabled or economically challenged, especially people of color just for desiring change and equality. It is basically saying, "My gratification is more important than your dignity, your rights or even your life." Most films about Natives concentrate on European narratives or indigenous experience in North America but there are Natives abroad and being "loved in the wrong way" in "Indian crazy" Germany has many forms and effects. Germany is a microcosm of struggles taking place across western society both against and for decolonization; for correcting white privilege, supremacist belief and a patriarchal mentality that's divided and helped destroy cultures, peoples and our world. We explore the roots of racism, colonialism, and appropriation in Germany from a rarely considered perspective: The Native American they adore.
