To me, the everything-and-everyone Barbie movement reached a new depth of a public relations swamp, when they decided what a Native American / First Nation Barbie should look like, and be accessorized with. Without considering the very many unique characteristics that so many proud people have, along with their tribal affiliations and allegiances, and the feeling that many have towards their image and place in history and in modern society. Even if you pick one tribe, in one location, and one place in time, you will almost always find those members to still be very sensitive over how they should be publically depicted to non-members. Like I said: a public relations swamp of epic proportions.
