WHAT IS HOLLYWOOD?
What does it stand for?
Why is central place everyone who wants to be a movie star?
Today we look at the esoteric and metaphysical nature of Hollywood.
“The druids were tree worshippers, especially the oak. The holly was their most sacred symbol because it was sacred to mother Holle or Hel, the [Norse] goddess of the underworld. The druids was conquered by the Romans as was Jersalem, and all there where mixed together from western christianity.
The origin of the television set was heavily shrouded in both spiritualism and the occult, writes author Stefan Andriopoulos in his new book Ghostly Apparitions. In fact, as its very name implies, the television was first conceived as a technical device for seeing at a distance: like thetelephone (speaking at a distance) and telescope (viewing at a distance), the television was intended as an almost magical box through which we could watch distant events unfold, a kind of technological crystal ball.

In news making international headlines, several Native actors were told "If you guys are so sensitive, you should leave,...", in response to their concerns of denigrating and racist portrayals of Native people. They left the production.
Hollywood has long been known for stereotyping Native characters, or portraying the white hero who saves the day for the Natives as if they were incapable of overcoming insurmountable adversity.
One Navajo actor, Loren Anthony, originally refused to participate in the film, but changed his mind when he was told a cultural consultant was hired to ensure a "tasteful representation" of Natives. They told me it was going to be a comedy, but it would not be racist he said. Other Native actors and actresses expressed their concern, but were ignored and told they should leave. When they left, including the consultant, the story went viral and was reported on CNN International.
Critics say they should have expected anything different because it is satire. The definition of satire is:
1. the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc.
2. a literary composition, in verse or prose, in which human folly and vice are held up to scorn, derision, or ridicule.
3. a literary genre comprising such compositions.
Netflix, who signed Sandler defended defended him, "The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous. It is a broad satire of Western movies and the stereotypes they popularized, featuring a diverse cast that is not only part of -- but in on -- the joke."
David Hill, Choctaw, says the producers has called back the consultant and those who left. We'll be speaking with David Hill and others about their experiences with this racial stereotyping. Please join us friday evening on Eaglemanz: Chahta Nation.
