Native Americans slam plans to display ‘racist’ tapestry finished off by Prince Charles because it depicts them as ‘subhuman, warlike savages’

Plans to display a ‘racist’ British tapestry completed by Prince Charles have been slammed because it depicts Native Americans as ‘subhuman, warlike savages.’

The 267ft New World Tapestry, depicting North American colonisation between 1583 and 1642, perpetuates a ‘racist tradition’, the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) said.

It took 256 volunteers from Devon and Dorset 20 years to complete the tapestry, with the final stitch sewn by Prince Charles in 2000.
