Gianna: Can you tell us about your role on the show? Who are you? Where do you come from? What’s in store for your character this season?
Janina: I play Luna. I grew up on Navajo Nation, and I’m now a schoolteacher.
Comment: I imagine the Luna character is supposed to be a Navajo skinwalker. That's only been done a hundred or so times, so what's once more?
I guess Tinsel Korey wasn't available? She would've been perfect as an Asian Indian pretending to be a Navajo.

Sooo not cool. They should be ashamed of themselves.
"Theres a old saying about Hollywood, that they will do anything for money."
Minorities buy more movie tickets
Hollywood won't do anything for money. Specifically, it won't make films starring minorities. Even though many minorities buy more tickets than whites.
So the "bottom line" argument is misleading if not false. Hollywood is racist, not just money-oriented. If it were money-oriented, it would make more movies with indigenous characters like Avatar or the Twilight movies.
First whites, usually Italians playing Indians, now this. Get rid of these impostors wherever they maybe.
