NAtive Appropriations

 Native Appropriations was created in January 2010 to explore the ways that Native peoples are represented in media and society. It has grown from a place to catalog instances of misrepresentation, stereotypes, and cultural appropriation to a forum for discussion of larger and broader issues of representation and what it means to be a Native person in contemporary society.
