Jessica Simpson ticks off Indians.

Jessica Simpson, Indians, Tony Romo

Jessica Simpson ticked off the Indians this week when a Reporter asked her if she planned to take back the boat she bought for former boyfriend, Tony Romo. She proclaimed that she isn’t an Indian Giver. Maybe its because she can’t get into the gate to repo the boat? Here is more from Us Magazine.

Jacqueline L. Pata, executive director of the National Congress of American Indians, tells Usmagazine.com Simpson isn’t the only person who uses the word in a derogatory sense.
The concept of Indians giving and sharing with one another is where the term originated, she explains, but has somehow morphed into an insensitive phrase that stereotypes Native people as ones who give and then take back.
“Most people flippantly use the comment ‘Indian giver’ without realizing its true meaning, Pata tells Us.
