Author
  • Vanessa Philogene (Iowa State University)

Abstract

What experience do you have with Native American history? How much of this did you learn in school? Better question: how much of this did you learn through mass media and pop culture? This session will discuss the exploitation of Native American culture and the questionable accuracy of information presented as history of the Native American population. Join us as we uncover examples of how we witness this exploitation in the media on a regular basis and what we can do to stop it.
