Of all the stories I've been told by the local Native elders, this one stands out and speaks to me the most. I hope it changes your life as much as it's changed mine.
I thought it was more satire of a documentary style. There's no hate or derision in there. The only references to American Indians that I heard were the dialect he spoke, and the reference to the spirits. Other than that, it was just a funny story.
Seriously, guys, getting offended just because an artist uses a character who is another race than his own deliberately misses the point of the cartoon, vandalizes comedy as an art form, and obscures issues of real intent.
If you are an American Indian, were you victimized by this cartoon? No, you were not. None of your dignity has been put at risk. Nobody is taking more of your land. The only thing that was taken from you by this cartoon was the time it took for you to watch it and write an irrelevant review.
Tame your racial knee-jerking, jerks! There still are real racists out there, and you'll never be able to find them if you're busy making sure people never say "Merry Christmas" to each other!
Thanks for you support! The ironic thing about it all is there's a Native Canadian TV show shot in our city that's considering buying this cartoon. Natives love it!
Tried to soar high like the spirit of the eagle...
But wound up tangled like the spirit of the extension cord.
lol, love that line. And as a Native American of the Comanche tribe, I can say the humor was well thought out for a short flash comedy about a Native Legend.
I'm glad you enjoyed it! I feel bad if people are offended by it, that was never the intention. If you watch any sort of Native American story on YouTube, they all follow this basic format, I just tried to modernize it for the everyday working man.
nice made up fable
Unfortunately it is completely racist.
Remake this using an african culture and watch. your video will be removed in less then an hour.
Sad that racism against my people is still looked upon as ok.
It's nothing personal - it's the Indian Way.
I thought this was a great flash! Everything about it was really good. Nice work
Thanks, glad you enjoyed it! :D
the natives where I live are just the same but they also sit on the curb drinking vinilla and listerine trying to get drunk.
Sounds like a bum deal.
Can't beat that game!!
It's Payday Fellas !
