Graham Greene's comment on stereotypes/appropriation

Graham Greene is Oneida, and is, perhaps, the most recognizable Native actor in film and TV today. In this clip I found on YouTube, he offers a comment on stereotyping and appropriation.

This clip is so funny; my husband and I watched it multiple times. Very "ab-original". Graham Greene seems to be good at comedy; it's always weirdly humorous to see him on the Red Green Show.

I didn't know about this video! Very funny, and it's definitively against the humor-lacking Indian stereotype!
