    Indigenous stories have long been pigeon-holed into harmful stereotypes: violence, drunkenness, poverty, obesity; the wise elder, the noble savage, the Indian princess. While the most brazen stereotypes may have disappeared, insidious misrepresentations remain in popular media in the form of oversimplification, omission and romanticization. Stereotypes hurt society as a whole. For indigenous people, stereotypes instill limiting beliefs and decreases cultural pride. For non-indigenous people, stereotypes dehumanize indigenous individuals and diminish respect for their cultural heritage.
