  1. Regarding Rebecca Roanhorse – https://www.indianz.com/News/2020/06/24/the-elizabeth-warren-of-the-scifi-set-au.asp

    “A popular author is facing renewed accusations of cultural appropriation after repeatedly using tribal stories and traditions without consent.
    In her latest work, Rebecca Roanhorse describes herself as a being Native American from Ohkay Owingeh, one of the 19 Pueblo communities in New Mexico. But she is not a citizen of the federally recognized Indian nation, whose homelands are located in the northern part of the state.
    Additionally, no one under the name Roanhorse, her married name, or that of Parish, her maiden name, is a citizen, Indianz.Com confirmed. And in public settings, she has told people she has never lived in the tribal community.”
