This group of Irishmen dress up in pseudo “Native American” garb, fingerpaint on their faces, and each has a stage name that is stolen from a respected Indigenous Warrior or Holy Man. They claim to play country & western music, with songs like “Wigwam Wiggle”. They have at least two Facebook FanPages, and s…everal videos on Youtube.
This stereotyping and cultural mockery is the lubricant that allows for the genocide to go down all that more smoothly.
They’ve gotten away with this for 40 years, but now, thanks to the internet – they have been exposed.
Help us to have them erased from the internet, and forced into retirement. They have made enough money making fun of our Cultures.
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
Report their Fanpages.
Flag their Youtube Videos
Write to their Band Manager.
Contact the establishments that have them booked to play.
Write to diplomats and complain that they are in contravention of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
Contact the press here, and in the UK, and make a fuss.
Enlist your friends everywhere to assist!
