How to Spot Wannabe Indians by Simon Moya-Smith

Though some people think I am the only person who has a problem with wannabes and fake Indians, I'm not. This man isn't Cherokee, but he mentions Cherokee wannabes, because even other Indians hear this Cherokee Myth Phenomenon all the time. It is very much worth a listen, but I will give a warning for language. But, sometimes a person has to tell it like it is and frankly, hearing this Cherokee blood claim over and over and over does tend to make a person want to cuss.

Anyway, give this a listen and also, check out Simon's blog, I Am Not a Mascot.
