An enthusiastic caucasian proponent of Native American culture, usually exhibiting various degrees of cultural appropraition, including but not limited to:
- the "taking" of an "Indian Name"
- wearing of various articles of generic Native American garb including moccasins, ribbon shirts etc.
- hanging a Dream Catcher in anything other than the appropriate place (ie: the car rearview mirror, on your keychain)
- sporting a T-shirt or sweatshirt with various dramatic spiritual representations of wolves, eagles or Indian Princesses swirling around a planet or tree
- approaching any random Native American person and holding your hand to their heart, declaring solidarity and apologizing for what your ancestors did to the First Peoples
- believing that you are Native American because your great-great-great grandmother's half sister once made out with a Cherokee
The strange Windian woman wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with wolves approached, and with a far away look in her eye she said, "Are you Native American? My uncle handed down his Indian Name to me, I am White Eagle Feather. So sorry about all the imperialism and such. Do you know where I can find a good sweat lodge?"
