Dopey: Rapper Emerson Windy’s Native American Shtick Sparks Outrage
Hip hop artist and “vaping” advocate Emerson Windy has gone all in with a faux-American Indian look and attitude, and Natives are asking him to cease and apologize.
Windy’s latest video is for a track called “Peace Pipe” off his album Herojuana. In the video, as on the album cover, Windy wears a feather headdress. The song’s lyrics are mainly about smoking marijuana (unsurprising, given the album’s title), which he conflates with the idea of the Native American “peace pipe.
