Custer Had It Coming! Native American T-Shirts with Some Attitude

Custer Had It Coming! Native American T-Shirts with Some Attitude


Everyone knows the famous Homeland Security t-shirt -- it's a picture of Geronimo and three other Natives with the tagline "Fighting terrorism since 1492" -- but it's just one of many sly shirts that we've spotted on in-the-know Natives. In a way, wearing your tribal heritage -- and the legacy of injustice toward your people -- on your sleeve keeps history alive in our increasingly ahistorical age. There is irreverence here, and even jokes -- but the humor packs the punch of truth.

Ah. Really want one from Demockratees, but the domain expired. Anyone know where else they're available?

I've got a T-shirt with an unidentified group of NDNs in full regalia with the caption "Boarding School Dropouts." I've got another that was created by a friend of mine with a photo of Geronimo and his band with the caption, "The Untouchables." T-shirt activitism doesn't hurt anyone although I've gotten a few rude looks from up-tight White guys.

Thanks for the mention, Indian Country MN! Proud and honored to be the creator of the Homeland Security Fighting Terrorism Since 1492 shirt, most famous design ever and serving NDN Country since 2003! And you're right, Custer Was a Punk Bitch and we can hook you up with that shirt too!

Maybe a 'Rednecks' T-shirt, bearing a stereotypical Southerner, complete with overalls and moonshine jug, in the lettering style of a certain team whose name starts with 'Red'?
