Remove the Facebook pages of the Band The Indians Showband and The Indians

There are just somethings that need to be removed and this is one of those things. The other day I happen to catch a link to check out from NativeCeleb and got the shock of my life. The shock came from a country with a music group called The Indians.. Considering how they dress, what music they named, and the native names they chose to desecrate with their ballant disregard of the same people whom had helped their countrymen during the great famine of Ireland of the 1800’s.  Apparently they’ve been money at the expense of native people for well over 40 years and seems to think that its ok to continue protraying the native people in the fashion they do in. This is just my opinion only and not that of Native Hoop or TVI but we really need to put foot to arse in this case!
 
I hope you join the building protest against this group!

Yes, it’s true. There is a band over in Ireland, that has been raking in money by mocking Indigenous cultures for 40 years.
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!
