More history: Redface in theater and film
Just as Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have been harmed by the practices of "yellowface" and "whitewashing," indigenous people have experienced the effects of "redface."

The stereotyping has recently come to the fore as the NFL team representing Washington DC recently dropped the slur , The term Redskin had become a pejorative, fueled by American film depictions of indigenous people as "savages."

The practice of redface transcends face paint. It is reflected in clothing and speech.
Nature has its way at the theater
It is so beautiful out here. Please come visit. Borage and bees, Queen Anne's lace, Exbury azaleas, buttercups, euonymus and more. Swoon!
Stay safe and well. Mask, maintain distance and get your vaccine as soon as you can.
