Hollywood and Natives

No Doubt's Video: Just Another Hollywood Stereotype

Recently, the web has been buzzing over the portrayal of Native Americans in the popular band, No Doubt's latest video. While personally, this video doesn't really offend me, what I'm noticing is that it's primarily native people who were offended by it, leading to the band's decision to pull the video entirely. What the non-natives may not understand is the extreme sense of pride of native culture, by its people. Hollywood has inaccurately portrayed us since the early days of film, and this video is just an extension of that.
