Name and identity are important factors in how we view each other. What happens when a peoples’ name and identity is taken, misrepresented and presented to the public? Cultural appropriation has been and continues to be a problem in Indian county. This presentation will examine the detrimental effects this has and some areas where cultural appropriation of Native population occurs in American society, such as media, sports and historic records.
