Cow Tipping: the Militant Indian Waiter

In this original short drama, a Cherokee café waiter faces customers who insist on sharing their ignorance about American Indians--or are they Native Americans? His efforts to educate others often end in frustration, and a lousy tip. Based on his own experiences encountering skewed perceptions and depictions of his people, Redroad's story blends humor and rage and information. Clips from movie westerns help make his point.

"Director Randy Redroad’s hilarious short illustrates the confrontation of cultural insensitivity and cultural oversensitivity, leading to a seemingly endless cycle of the same old, same old."
- Through Indian Eyes Film Program, UCLA Film & Television Archive

"A vigilant and hip Cherokee waiter who dispenses righteous anger with the burgers and fries."
- Laura U. Marks
