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.

    But they WERE warlike savages.
    Besides, let’s take a look at how contemporary native American art unfairly portrays whites.
    Screw the Indians.
    They don’t get a veto over our art.

    If you have any doubts about the whole “savages” thing, just ask Brebeuf & Lalemant:

    Not “subhuman” – just plain old Human Savages.

    We need to reach an understanding. We can depict them how we want in our art, and they can depict us how they want in their art.
