The Stereotypes Of Native American Culture

Decent Essays
First off, the supposed overall countenance of a typical Native American is a major stereotype in the minds of many Americans. This is partly due to the fact that the mass media portrays the Indians as these funny characters we can gather amusement from. On the contrary, Native Americans have a deep and rich culture and history, most of which we undermine as foreign and strange. Additionally, we are not exposed to Native American culture and food like we are exposed to, say, Mexican or Asian culture and food. If we incorporated Native American culture to our overall melting pot of cultures this would aid in dispelling myths and stereotypes as we became more acquainted with the people.
