Submitter: Just why does this fit on your site and no longer on our shelves? Well, in part because we do not have a cultural appropriation/desecration section. Maybe it’s the suggestion of recreating a traditional drawing as a father’s day present, or use of language (see text in the attachment labelled “Aboriginal – baby”) I haven’t heard since Evan Mecham was run out of office, but I just can’t think of this as something belonging in the 745.5s.
Holly: There is a difference between books that celebrate a culture – and their traditional arts and crafts – and those that over time become caricatures. Terminology and ethnocentrism have to be considered, 45 years later.
