All the usual Know Phase trappings; Native Americansploitation shot by post-dadaist tripping Italians in the mid 80′s (Arrapaho) segueing into a Kurt Vonnegut inspired chrono-synclastic shelled dreamstate (Between Time and Timbuktu) all set to Peaking Light’s mind meltingly good new song Tiger Eyes (Laid Back). Feeling like I want to bring VJing back in a new way, starting now.

  2. There is NOTHING appropriate about this footage. Gross!

    Cultural appropriation is so offensive.

    If you are going to bring back VJ’ing in a big way, you should start with a BIG critique of ‘Native Americanspoiltation’, not just put it out there so some white kid can think they are the shit showing up at a party in an Indian headress. For real.

    White people ‘playing Indian’ blurring their own stoned stereotypes of Native peoples does not honor the First Peoples of this country whatsoever. I don’t care what decade the original sci-fi footage is from, it doesn’t need to be rehashed into this one so yet another kid shows up to party in an Indian headress and continues to reenact THEIR fairy tale versions of Native people and act like they aren’t still here today, still fighting genocide and invisibility and oppression.

    The song is gorgeous but the grossly offensive video totally killed it. I will post some more resources about this soon for people to become informed if you are willing to open your eyes and hearts to the criticisms that are very valid and relevant here.

    Really now.

  3. RACIST! This ‘playing Indian’ by non-indian peoples are acts of spiritual degradation & appropriation. Native communities, WHO ARE STILL HERE, have to witness this with every kid who dresses up like Pocahontas on Halloween, or every time they turn on the TV to watch the Redskins, Braves, or Indians play. It’s disrespectful and racist to imitate and appropriate indigenous people and indigenous culture in the same fashion you would a spider man costume or a sesame street theme party.
