Peter Pan's "Savages"
In English, my class watched the original scene in Peter Pan where they sing "Savages". We discussed the impact of the incredibly racist song on Native American populations in addition to talking about the stereotyped portrayal of "indians". From the over sexualization of young girls to the gibberish language of the Indigenous people of Neverland, my class investigated the world that created this version of Peter Pan. this discussion fits in the pillar of Investigating the World because it allowed me to more fully understand the institutionalized racism against indigenous people that has plagued our world for hundreds of years. this source addresses my overarching question because it showed me just one example of the continuous fight for basic rights of Native Americans.
