  • Guadalupe Vera (Iowa State University)

Abstract

Indians wear feathers. They live in tipis and do dances making "whooping" sounds. Native Americans are quiet, timid people. These stereotypes are often associated with the Native American ethnic group. In the real world, a Native American person is the same as any other person; yet diverse and often misunderstood. This session will bring to the forefront some stereotypes associated with Native Americans and will confront the truth behind these stereotypes.
