Twilight may be trash but at least they cast actual native americans to play natives
you know you’ve fucked up when Twilight does something better than you
Okay story time
So I went to college at Western Washington University, which is super close to the Lummi reservation.
I went to see New Moon in theaters with a couple of friends (we love hatewatching stuff, and had a few drinks before going to the theater). We were super confused when we sat down, because for some reason about half the theater was full of 12-year-old boys. The movie starts, it’s just as terrible as we expect, and then about halfway through the movie theatre erupts into cries of THERE HE IS!!! THERE HE IS!!!
Turns out the boys had come to see their Lummi buddy who had been cast as one of the werewolves in the movie. It was absolutely adorable, and my friends and I instantly felt super irresponsible for having come to a movie to trash the film a kid’s friends went to to support.
Hey guys FYI the Quileute tribe (the one depicted in Twilight) is currently fundraising because they have to move their entire town of La Push to higher ground to avoid everything being destroyed by climate change related rising oceans. Maybe give them some money okay.
