Something literally called the Indian Arts and Craft Act from 80 years ago says that only Native Americans can sell Native American labeled crap in this country. Your friend’s mom who’s into crystals and producing jade jewelry she sells on eBay under the name Sioux Princess is probably a felon. Also, you can fuck her after two mulled wines and a couple puffs of wampum. Don’t tell your friend.
The Navajo tribe sued Urban Outfitters because the retailer keeps trying to sell overpriced shmata it labels the Navajo line as made in China. Urban Outfitters defended itself by claiming it’s lame and biting and anybody who buys their overpriced shit is a Millennial moron whose parents stupidly gave them a credit card. But that’s more of an explanation than a defense, so the judge is letting the lawsuit proceed. If the Navajo are successful, every Urban Outfitters brick and mortar store in the Southwest will be turned into a casino featuring 21 because blackjack is inherently racist. This is good news for the Gatlin Brothers and Matchbox 20.
