“Indians feel no pain!” and “No ‘firewater’ for you, it makes your people crazy!” are comments Natives living in Germany may still hear daily, such as Gerald “Kunu” Dittmer (Ho-Chunk). He grew up in Berlin and has experienced a range of “treatment” from shallow adoration of his “Indianness”, to antagonism and resentment of his heritage, especially if he didn't oblige requests to meet white German expectations. A documentary directed by Red Haircrow on Native stereotypes and their connection to racism, colonialism, and deep societal issues.
