After modeling in competitions and submitting my pictures to different agencies, I finally got my big break. I was offered a contract to star in my own website. I saw it as an opportunity to try something exciting and different. ... I was surprised how comfortable I was posing and being relaxed and natural in front of the camera. ... It's fun feeling pretty, beautiful, and sexy.
Translating this writeup from Taj-speak into English, we get the following: "I was so desperate for success that I sold out everything my culture respects and honors. I changed my name, got a boob job, and agreed to pose nude for money."
The only thing missing from this site is Taj posing in a loincloth and chief's headdress. I wonder why she hasn't implemented this obvious money-making idea. I guess she has principles.
I'd love to hear what the defenders of the Rez Dog calendar, Redskin magazine, and similar projects have to say about this. Just another example of a liberated Native woman celebrating her strength and independence? Another role model for Native girls to admire and emulate? Hm-mm...sure it is.
