The Sunshine State
This blog is a satire of the banal values and aesthetics embodied by certain milieus in South Dakota. I use humor in the tradition of Sherman Alexie or the 1491s. The context is a history of colonization and genocide

Because, Native Americans are represented so poorly in the media, I often appropriate white culture in an act of detournement

The film “Why White People Are Funny” takes a similar approach, by “othering” settler society in a reversal of what anthropologists have always done to indigenous peoples
