Some say Acadian singer's music video is rife with stereotypes depicting First Nations people
The video, which includes 34-year-old St-Pier sporting a full headdress, dream catchers and the singer paddling a birch canoe, has been criticized by René Cormier, president of the Société nationale de l'Acadie (SNA).
"Despite all the efforts we do, we continue to convey these kind of clichés," Cormier told Radio-Canada on Monday.
Rife with stereotypes depicting aboriginal culture in Canada, the video also includes children in paper headdresses dancing around a teepee.
