Tonight, December 4th at 8/7pm central, NBC will be airing Peter Pan Live! Once again subjecting the indigenous communities of this country to the mockery of their identities and culture for the sake of entertainment.
Peter Pan has the most racist and damaging portrayals of indigenous people. In every single reincarnation, whether through film, literature, or broadway, what remains the same is the misappropriation of indigenous identities, culture, imagery and the promotion of violence towards indigenous women. So please join and take a stand against #RedfaceDisgrace! Feel free to use the tweet list below.
@nbc should have taken a cue from Larissa FastHorse in updating Peter Pan. http://www.startribune.com/entertainment/stageandarts/284012701.html?page=1&c=y #peterpanlive #notyourtigerlily Tweet #NotYourTigerlily
The portrayal of silent “Indian Princess” Tiger Lily is a stereotype that Native parents do not want their children to see #NotYourTigerLily
