Johnny Depp dresses up as Tonto to meet Navajo Nation president

Johnny Depp met with members of the Native American Navajo Nation on the set of The Lone Ranger Depp, who plays Tonto in the upcoming Western remake, happily posed for photos with Navajo president Ben Shelly and vice president Rex Lee Jim.

With the Monument Valley in Utah as a fitting backdrop, Depp is seen in the photo sporting dramatic black and white make-up, a head band, and a brightly coloured cloth wrapped around him. The actor has also been given long, braided hair.

The snap comes shortly after a first official image for the film was released, which shows Depp and his co-star, Mirror, Mirror's Armie Hammer, on horseback, in what is tipped to be an exciting reboot that stays true to the original.

Native American Fashion Trends

Fashion trends come and go, but like the little black dress some garb never goes out of style. For decades, footwear, jewelry, purses and clothing with Native American influences have surfaced as fashion staples, cycling in and out of designer collections in any given year. But is this cultural appropriation or high fashion’s attempt to salute indigenous cultures? Clothing chains such as Urban Outfitters have come under fire for labeling their goods “Navajo” with reportedly no input from the Navajo Nation. To boot, bloggers are increasingly taking to task non-Natives who wear headdresses and other indigenous apparel to play a cross-cultural game of dress up of sorts. By supporting indigenous designers and learning more about the missteps the fashion world has made in regards to Native dress, you can avoid making the ultimate fashion faux pas—cultural insensitivity.  Read More

Native American Genealogy & Family History - Native American Ancestry

Native American Genealogy & Family History - Native American Ancestry:

Many people have family stories of Native American ancestry. The "Indian Princess" story is the most common. Also, people want to research their Native American ancestry because either they or some family member "looks Indian". It is important to note by viewing the photo at right of Garnett S. SMISER, a certified Choctaw, proving looks are no indication of Native American ancestry. Sad to say, but Native American tribes did not have princesses either; chiefs and warriors, but not princesses. But since this is how many people get involved in genealogy, it is important to address it. Many people have the story of a female Indian in their line. Read More

Heidi And Spencer: Blasted By Native Americans

They recently gave themselves “real Native American” names, and in the process Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt also gained a bunch of new foes.
According to a report, several Native American groups are taking issue with Speidi’s new names, Running Bear and White Wolf.

A member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe explained, "Continued stereotyping such as this by people ignorant of our traditional ways is very disrespectful and only hurts our efforts to curtail these stereotypes. The names they have given themselves are legitimate names in our tribe.”
Prior to their Native American monikers, Pratt declared himself King Spencer. Later, he ditched the title because it was “too much of a burden to have to carry the weight of royalty.”

Native American Pride: Taylor Lautner

Taylor Lautner
Native Pride, Native American

credit: Google
EDIT: I realize some folks don’t consider him a Native actor. That’s fine, but I decided to include Lautner, as well as some others, because while they might not be full-blooded Native actors, per se, Native American is part of their blood, and they still deserve to represent that part of themselves if they choose, I think (not in a fetishistic way, of course, but if they really want to explore that side of themselves, I don’t think there should be a “Native enough” argument going on. I say this as a person who has distant Native relations in my family tree and as a person who has often been in a “Black enough” argument do to how I act and conduct myself.)
Occupation: Actor/voice actor/model
Seen in: Shark Boy and Lava Girl in 3-D, the Twilight films, Valentine’s Day,
Tribe: distant relations on his mother’s side to the Ottawa and Potawatomi tribes (Lautner is also German, French, and Dutch)
Hobbies/other talents: Martial arts
Trivia: As of last year, Lautner is considered the highest-paid teenage actor in Hollywood
Quotes: (When talking about his favorite line in Twilight“It’s not in the first book, but the quote I love the most is Jacob’s quote, ‘Does my half being naked bother you?’ That quote just cracks me up. Because you know, that’s when he’s shirtless, not wearing a top – we’ll have to wait to see what he looks like.”
(On his acting career): “When I was in school, there was a lot of bullying going on…people making fun of what I do…I just had to tell myself I can’t let this get to me. This is what I love to do. And I’m going to continue doing it.”

This Little Piggy...

Did you know that today, March 1st is National Pig Day?

National Pig Day recognizes and gives thanks to domesticated pigs

When : National Pig Day- always March 1st Yellow Pig Day - always July 17th About Pig Days- -

For some unknown reason, big, pot-bellied pigs seen in zoos, are often the symbol of the day. Pigs are clever and intelligent animals. But, most people are unaware of this high level of intelligence. They can be taught to do tricks. Some people even keep them as pets. Today is a day to give pigs the respect that they deserve. National Pig day is celebrated by zoos, too. Activities include Snort Offs, Pig Outs, and online Pig Chats. However you choose, do not miss celebrating this day.

Yellow Pig Day is a mathematician's holiday celebrating yellow pigs (is there such a thing!?!), and the number 17. It is celebrated annually since the early 1960's, primarily on college campuses, and primarily by mathematicians. On campus, Yellow Pig Cake and Yellow Pig Carols are tradition! If you are a mathematician, spend part of the day thinking and working in multiples of 17. And, while you do so, give a little thought to yellow pigs. Another Pig Day? There is also some references to a "Pig Day" on January 17th. We found it in online calendars and on Ecard companies. We did not find it in any published documents. We did not find any factual evidence supporting this day on January 17th. Color of the Day: pink, of course! Origin of National Pig Day and Yellow Pig Day: Ellen Stanley, a Texas art teacher created National Pig Day in 1972. Her intent was to to recognize and be thankful for pigs as intelligent domestic animals. There is no evidence to suggest that this is truly a "National" day, which requires an act of congress. The Yellow Pig was the brainstorm of mathematicians Michael Spivak and David C. Kelly in the early 1960's. They were students at Princeton University, studying mathematics. History was made as they were listing interesting properties of the number 17 (can you imagine the interesting properties!?). During this thought wave, the yellow pig was born. Most likely, it had 17 toes, 17 teeth, 17 eyelashes, etc. The yellow pig and the number 17 have been linked ever since.

Adam Beach

Date of Birth: 11 November 1972
Birth Name: Adam Beach
Place of Birth: Ashern, Manitoba, Canada Adam Beach Height: 5' 11"
Profession: Actor
Movies: Joe Dirt The Last Stop

One of the most visible Native American actors working in films, Adam Beach's recent claim to fame has been the portrayal of a young Native American youth who faces reservations across his own country in the critically acclaimed Clint Eastwood directed World War II drama, 'Flags of Our Fathers' (2006). But before this high profile movie project came Beach's way, he was busy establishing his reputation as a versatile and talented actors in a string of independent movies and assorted TV appearances in meaty roles in many of Hollywood's productions.

Born on 11 November 1972, in Ashren, Canada, Beach belongs to the First Nation of Saulteaux origin (native people of Canada). At the age of eight Beach lost his parents to fatal accidents within a span of three-months. Beach along with his brothers were adopted to be raised by his aunt and uncle and relocated to Winnipeg. Though Beach joined his high school drama club for fun, he promptly fell in love with the art of performing and joined the Manitoba Theatre for Young People after dropping out of school! In 1990, Beach landed his first lead role for on-screen credit in 'Lost in the Barrens', in a supporting role, at the age of 18. More roles followed in other Theatre productions and Canadian TV serials including the lead role in 'Squanto: A Warrior's Tale' (1995), Disney's historical drama. But the movie 'Dance Me Outside' (1995) directed by Bruce McDonald's that can be described as Beach's breakout from 'obscurity to popularity' role! The film was based on W.P. Kinsella's novel and was a big hit due to its wit and style. The success of DMO was followed by the success of a TV spin-off series, 'The Rez' (1995-98) with Beach as one of the cast members. Work started coming in steadily after the success of DMO. In 1996, he married Meredith Porter and fathered two sons (1996 & 1998). 'Smoke Signals' directed by Chris Eyre, and released in 1998 was another career highlight for Beach. This comedy-drama about two young men who try to come to terms with their heritage and families while on a road trip to collect the remains of one man's father was the first ever film to be written, directed, produced, and starring Native American actors.

The movie won several awards doing the rounds of the film festival circuits including the Sundance Film Festival and Independent Spirit Award, and helped Beach turn Hollywood's eyes on himself. 'Mystery, Alaska' (1999), was Beach's first Hollywood role and he spared no effort. This was followed by 'Joe Dirt' (2001), and in 2002, Beach got another great opportunity. He was offered his meatiest role to date, in John Woo's WWII drama 'Windtalkers', where he plays the role of a Navajo soldier whose services are engaged by U.S Army to deliver a code in the native language. Nicholas Cage and Christian Slater were his co-stars. For this role, Beach has to learn to speak Navajo! Though, the film wasn't a huge commercial success, but it gave Beach plenty of frame space to showcase his acting skills and hold his own against Hollywood stalwarts such as Cage! Adam Beach acted in many movies after Windtalkers such as 'Skinwalkers, TV Series 'Third Watch' (NBC, 1999-2005), 'Bottom's Up) (2006) etc. Beach has constantly vowed critics with the singular quality of his performances even in a movie with ensemble cast!

Whitney Houston's Final Interview With E! and Final Performance—Watch Now

Read more:

Less than two days before her unexpected demiseWhitney Houston jumped in on E! News' interview with BrandyMonica and Clive Davis, Whitney's longtime champion and music industry mentor.
Houston appeared lively—if borderline manic—offering the trio hugs and kisses as she bid farewell from the Grammy rehearsals on Thursday, even urging her 19-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, to give her "godfather" Davis a hug.
Davis embraced Houston and sent her off with what in retrospect is an sadly eerie comment, characterizing the moment as "a day of tribute."
Later that night, Houston joined Kelly Price onstage for the latter's unplugged concert in L.A. (The Grammy-nominated Price was a featured artist along with Faith Evans on Houston's "Heartbreak Hotel" from 1998's My Love Is Your Love.)
The two dueted on what would be Houston's finale performance, a version of "Yes, Jesus Loves Me," which was captured on cell phone video and has made its way online.
"Whitney was happy, doing what she loved, with her friends and completely joyful," Price's rep tells E! News. "It was beautiful."

Zuni Fetish

Follow Me on Pinterest

Native American Zuni fetishes are small hand carved stone images of animals that are made by the talented Zuni Pueblo Artisans.

Zuni Pueblo is not just a name of an American Indian Tribe but it is a region in the Four Corners U.S.A. in the remote Northwest area of New Mexico about 150 miles west of the Rio Grande Valley. The population of the Zuni Pueblo Village has approximately 9500 to 10000 people and the primary revenue of its inhabitants is from their hand crafted art of making Native American Jewelry and hand carved Zuni fetishes.

These hand-carved fetishes remain part of the Zuni religion and culture and are believed to represent the animal spirit within the stone. Prior to the use of today’s power tools which produce finest contemporary, detailed carvings made, initially, Zuni fetishes were just stones that were found which had a rudimentary shape of an animal. The Zuni’s would place arrowheads on these stones to pray that the hunters arrow would find its mark, and give gratitude to the animal for giving its life for the sustenance of the hunter and his family.

The Zuni’s believe in six sacred directions with each direction being represented by a color: Above, North, East, South, West and Below. Each direction also has an animal associated with it both for fetishes believed to give healing and protection, and hunting fetishes which replace the badger with the bobcat as the southern animal, and the coyote replacing the bear as the animal of the west. You will find these directions and colors represented in their carvings:
