Another boring romanticism repackaged for an uncaring white audience.

Hmmmm. Really? I don't think anything you said above has meaning, but in case I'm wrong let me ask a few questions. What level of expertise do you have regarding Indians, or if you prefer, Native Americans, in the 19th century? I need to know this to address the accusation of Romanticism, as opposed to accurate, specific portrayal, based on contemporary photographs and advice from historians.
Then I'd like to ask in what sense we are to care. You criticize possible Romanticism but then imply Romantic sympathies are missing.
Next what makes you think living Natives weren't consulted?
