From Love Isn't Enough, an excellent blog about parenting and race, I found this post titled, Ask ARP (Anti-Racist Parent): Why Can't Non-Native Children Dress Up Like Indians? Wow. It's well worth reading and I'd have written the author asking permission to reprint it here if I had time, but I found it early Wednesday morning after Googling "white people dressed like indians/native americans." That bit of research, obviously, was provoked by this week's postcard photo of children - non-Native in appearance - posing along an old Indian trail.
One of the comments at the above-linked post referred readers to videos titled, Desperate Crossing: the Untold Story of the Mayflower at History.com. Here are links to two of them ......... for reflection. The videos are narrated by Jim Loewen, author of Lies My Teacher Told Me.
