No Doubt Pull 'Looking Hot' Video After Offending Native Americans | Rolling Stone

No Doubt Pull 'Looking Hot' Video After Offending Native Americans | Rolling Stone | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"No Doubt addressed the controversy on Saturday with an apology posted on their website:

 

"As a multi-racial band our foundation is built upon both diversity and consideration for other cultures. Our intention with our new video was never to offend, hurt or trivialize Native American people, their culture or their history. Although we consulted with Native American friends and Native American studies experts at the University of California, we realize now that we have offended people. This is of great concern to us and we are removing the video immediately. The music that inspired us when we started the band, and the community of friends, family, and fans that surrounds us was built upon respect, unity and inclusiveness.  We sincerely apologize to the Native American community and anyone else offended by this video. Being hurtful to anyone is simply not who we are." "

Lack of education on aboriginal taxes - StarPhoenix

Lack of education on aboriginal taxes - StarPhoenix | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"The Social Science Research Laboratory at the University of Saskatchewan - the only facility of its kind in Canada - created the Taking the Pulse survey in its group analysis lab, which includes multiple departments from across the faculty of arts and sciences. Their research found many people have a mistaken belief in the level of taxes paid by aboriginal people.

 

Nothing is certain but death and taxes - and despite what many Saskatchewan residents may think - this rings true for aboriginal people as well."

 

- Kerry Benjoe, Leader-Post

 

*Good article about taxes and Aboriginal people.

‘Indianthusiasm’: Romanticized ideas about First Nations life offer escapism for Germans | Canada | News | National Post

‘Indianthusiasm’: Romanticized ideas about First Nations life offer escapism for Germans | Canada | News | National Post | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"More than a century ago, as Germany was striving to match the imperial ambitions of the other European powers, the imaginations of its people were captured by the tales of Old Shatterhand, a German travelling the American frontier, and his loyal Apache guide, Winnetou.

 

German writer Karl May’s serial adventures were beloved by Hitler and Albert Einstein alike; they spoke to the colonial longings of the German people at the time.

 

The genre continues to have a weird resonance in Germany even today, said Hartmut Lutz, who is teaching a course in German “Indianthusiasm” at the University of Calgary this term as a visiting scholar — one who has studied topics related to Germany’s treatment of North American aboriginal cultures for decades."
