Plains chief on oyster can

Adrienne Keene brings another item to our attention in her Native Appropriations blog:

Random Appropriation of the Day! (Daufuski Korean Oysters)

She notes that the Indians on South Carolina's Daufuskie Island 1) didn't wear Plains headdresses and 2) were massacred. So the Daufuski Oyster label is doubly offensive.
