    Supermodel Heidi Klum is in hot water after posting after posting a Native American-theme photo shoot from her television series "Germany's Next Topmodel to her Facebook page. Many say the pictures promote stereotypes and are culturally insensitive.

    Klum has remained silent on the topic, but on Thursday, Christoph Korfer, a rep from ProSieben, the German TV station that airs the show, told Yahoo Shine, “We have nothing but the utmost esteem for the Native American culture and are so sorry if our shoot was offensive to anyone. By no means was our intention to insult Native Americans or in any way demean their heritage. We sincerely apologize."

    ...Last week writer and activist Ruth Hopkins of Dakota and Lakota Sioux heritage, also penned an open letter to Klum on the blog, Last Real Indians, writing, “As a Native woman, I’m tired of being bombarded with negative, false imagery of who society thinks I am. For once I’d like to enjoy a fashion show, a music video, a football game or a photo spread without being singled out because of my race. It’s not just offensive, it’s discriminatory and just plain rude.”

    She added, “Natives are not costumes one can take on and off. When people dress up in stereotypical ‘Indian’ garb, they’re not only denying the existence of 566 distinct Tribal Nations, they’re mocking an entire group of human beings based solely on their race and heritage.” Shea also said, “I don’t care how cute you look in a headdress. You aren’t Native. You have no right to wear a warbonnet because you have not earned it. You haven’t performed deeds of valor nor fought and given of yourself for a plains Tribal people. Every feather in a headdress signifies a specific act of bravery and self-sacrifice.”

    Mail a couple imported crates of German-brewed firewater as a peace offering. Injun drinkum failure. Mm.

    I do agree most depictions of the average Native "squaw" are quite antiquated. The indigenous women of today are not the demure, reserved & physically-adept images of Pocahontas' past, they're obese, meth-addicted, boisterous alcoholics with multiple children out of wedlock before the age of 16.

    Oh, and those loin-cloths the men used to sport? Traded in for western shirts & turqouise string-tie. They no longer hunt the mighty White buffalos, either, they instead hunt the best dollar menu options from the mighty Golden arches.

    Get with the times, Heidi.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess that "writer and activist" Ruth Hopkins has never given a decent blow job.

    in a few years, the whiny drama queens of our society, the perpetually offended, will ban all cowboy movies with non natives portraying natives.

    it is on that day that we shall rise and the great cleansing will begin.

    wait for it.

    Fuck the Indians. I was staying at an Indian hotel/casino outside of Santa Fe New Mexico last year and the casino didn't serve alcohol on the casino floor because the natives are all alcoholics and they don't want the Indians drinking while gambling. Fucking hypocrites.

    Seriously. Pretty amazing isn't it? I guess not enough 'actual' offensive things were happening at the time I guess.
    This is the sort of bullshit that makes people ignore legit complaints.....if one ever happened to come up.

    Europeans invented pants. I'm very offended that the rest of the planet wears them now. Will the mocking of my people never stop?
