THE SPUNKY SQUAW STANDSTILL

Indigenous organizers Yolonda Bluehorse, Jade Begay, and Nick Estes weigh in on the issue of “The Spunky Squaw” online boutique, which recently came on the radar of Indigenous social media users for its use of the dehumanizing “S-word.” While the efforts to shut down the page haven’t (yet) resulted in the intended outcome, this issue has galvanized Indigenous social media users and has also led to discussing larger topics of both the value and limitations of online activism. Here, our guests discuss solutions, and what can be done when it seems like online efforts to change minds and hearts, falls short.
