“Are you watching closely?” This presentation is loosely structured as a three-part magic act.
The acts are separated by personal anecdotes that reflect the ideology of lived experience versus the authorship of expertise of Native representation. Ernest discusses the many representations of Native Americans in media and how these representations inform audiences’ perceptions of Native peoples and issues.
