But I would suggest the story isnt as clear cut as the documentary makes out. I suspect the adopted aspect isnt entirely true but rather her mother had an affair with an indiginous person and she was the product of that union. Rather than expose her mother she suggestted she was adopted. She certain appears to have indigenous features. Quite apart from that she has been adopted by the community or atleast a significant family from the community and they support her regardless so it seems your faux outrage is misplaced.In reference to your words above, I would say that she saved herself from her everyday reality by living a fantasy that she "supplied" that has now caught up with her. She wasn't happy being a white woman born in Massachusetts so she created herself in the image of a First Nations' Indian born in Canada that people were apparently too afraid to pull the thread on and to this very day aren't ready to accept. That's the thing with lying, if you do it well people will go along for the ride.
I was never a fan of her music and only heard of her since California Son so I am coming into this completely objectively with no blow to my adoration like some I am seeing. I saw people make excuses for Lance Armstrong when he was found out too which I found completely bizarre.
Regardless of our differing opinions I appreciate the discourse
