Film

'Tootie's Last Suit' Looks at Mardi Gras' Black Indian Krewes





As recalled in Tootie’s Last Suit, Allison "Tootie" Montana saw in his role a means to make and also to remember history, to carry on a legacy.













Tootie's Last Suit


Director: Lisa Katzman
Cast: Allison "Tootie" Montana, Darryl Montana, Fred Johnson, Reverend Goat Carson, Gina Montana, Dr. John, Wynton Marsalis
Rated: NR
Year: 2009
US date: 2012-01-04 (Stranger Than Fiction)
Website
Trailer




"You can't be an Indian every day," observes Fred Johnson, former Yellow Pocahontas Spyboy. Still, he notes, the weight and meaning of being an Indian for Mardi Gras in New Orleans, can shape your consciousness, your sense of identity and place in your community. And Tootie Montana, Johnson says, "He took being a chief serious."


As recalled in Tootie’s Last Suit, Allison "Tootie" Montana saw in his role a means to make and also to remember history, to carry on a legacy. Premiering at Stranger Than Fiction on 21 February, followed by a Q&A with director Lisa Katzman, the documentary looks at how that legacy affects not only Tottie, but his family and community as well. He actually doesn't remember that much about his father -- who appears in old photos and footage here, brilliantly adorned as a chief himself -- but when he was a child, Tootie knew his daddy was "black and he had a mouthful of gold. Any man I seen had an Indian suit on, black with a mouthful of gold, I thought it was him."


And, just as Tootie adopted his absent father's allegiance to the Krewe, and the annual Mardia Gras celebration, showcasing his own ingenuity and pride, so too, Tootie's son Darryl took on the role of chief of Yellow Pocahontas, learning to sew from his father and his mother Joyce, understanding the value of traditions, the ways that costume and music and dance can convey resistance as well as conformity. The film looks at this experience -- multiple, complicated, not exactly resolvable -- by tracing a history of the Mardi Gras Indians and also looking at individual expressions of same.


The film notes that African Americans in New Orleans were masquerading as Native Americans in the 1700s, in honor of runaway slaves who found refuge there. The tradition was passed on, so that when, in the 1800s, participation in the city's parades were officially limited to "white prosperous males" (whose activities and hierarchies tended to "reinforce the social order), black krewes were forging their own sort of Creole identities, drawing from multiple sources. At least one inspiration was segregation, which produced various sorts of resistance, a commitment to cultural preservation, and a sense of autonomy. As Jerome Smith, Director of the Treme Community Center, puts it, "Being housed in what is a dominant Catholic community protected certain things and even in ways, segregation had a lot to do with isolating us and helping us to determine the vocabulary of our existence."


















Poppys I am talking about the article from VICE, they didn't Talk about Mardis Gras. I am talking about other carnival Festivals not that. If native American are okay with Mardis Gras, that's another thing. But there are still carnival where people choose offensive costumes and the natives don't find that okay. Mardis Gras is a different thing.

There's a lot about your stereotyping of me that would surprise you. I love flesh, tits AND dick. As you learned from the Hollywood Sexual Harassment thread, I have no problem sharing a bathroom with anyone either. Besides, that's only a small part of Mardi Gras.

Are you trying to hijack the thread or what? This is Not the topic! It was discussion racism in carnival, not Mardi gras

I just read an interesting article from VICE Germany, where they talk about the racism of carnival. There's a local community in Bayern, Germany and they're hunting a bear, a jew and a black man thru the streets.

The bear symbolises spring time and the jew and the black the "exotic" and "unknown." They even had racial slurs on their website until people complained about it.

But this is not all, let's talk about the racist costumes people wear on carnival

This is what the thread started! Stop Posting that Mardi Gras stuff, make your own thread

All this time I thought Mardi Gras and Carnival were the same celebrations. Talk about learning something new everyday. I haven't had the pleasure of being in the midst of either, I'm not sure which I'd want to do more NO Mardi Gras or Brazil's Carnival. I think Mardi Gras is probably safer for me. Plus, beignets are in NO so that's a draw for me.

You did say, and I quote "Now, I'm talking about cases that happened in germany, but I am pretty sure it happens all around the globe."

.

The peculiar and particular symbology at the Fasching/Carnival event in Bayern to my knowledge is not something that is replicated all around the globe. However Fasching/Carnival/Mardi Gras is celebrated in countries with Catholic heritages all around the world - they all lead up to today - Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent and preparation for Holy Week.

.

Note: Australia not having a strong Catholic heritage does not - The Sydney Mardi Gras is a modern celebration that started out as protest march against violence, lack of recognition and discrimination against the homosexual community 40 years ago - A Gay pride march that has gone over the top and become an annual event.

And I was also talking about costumes some people find offensive. Many native americans want their garb to be banned from the costume sections in Stores. It doesn't matter wich carnival you celebrate, if natives don't want you to dress up as them, you don't so it, period.

Here's what I said in the beginning:

Your point is understood (albeit not necessarily accepted by all as shown by the discussion and pictures). I think if you were concentrating on the Negerball (Yes, it is what it sounds like) and the purely racist things rather than just the dress up, you may have had a broader acceptance.

.

My point is talking about Mardi Gras is the same thing as talking about Fasching/Carnival. They are the same event, different country

Also now African cultures/nationalities are telling African-Americans to stop appropriating their culture

what I find racist is when someone like Chadwick is cast to play someone like Thurgood Marshal

Why ? Chadwick is the go to guy for any movie these days about real life Black person- Jackie Robinson, James Brown, and now Thurgood Marshall


And soon, he'll be a megastar for Black Panther.

The issue is not race with Chadwick playing Justice Marshall, the issues are accuracy and availability.

Accuracy in that he looks nothing like Thurgood Marshall.

Availability in that at least a few black actors were available to play that role that would favor Justice Marshall more than Chadwick.

OF4S, James Baldwin wrote that to be a Negro and relatively conscious is to be in a rage almost all the time.

The emotions of the black person in American, which are mostly internalized, are not simply Pavlovian.

.
Doing some research is key, knowledge is power. Trying to rile people up is never good.
I've been in rage before, it's poison for the body.
I've seen my aunt in a rage that she almost looked different and she told us in that moment she felt the cancer come back into her body and she died 3 months later.

.

I've read that by James Baldwin. Read all of his books and essays

James Baldwin being gay or bisexual was also enraged by the homophobia of Black folk toward himself

.

But I was talking about the case at hand thread topic

But this is not all, let's talk about the racist costumes people wear on carnival. I always found it strange when I saw white people wearing native american costumes. Not only do they look ridiculous, it's foremost racist as hell. I saw white people painting their faces black and wearing leopard skin and a bone chain around the neck, representing black people as canibals.

Jews are getting shit too, one guy said that soccer teams should get jewish strikers, because you#re not alowed to pursue them anymore.

Now, I'm talking about cases that happened in germany, but I am pretty sure it happens all around the globe. And I am aware that some people might say: "Dude, you're spoiling the fun." Hell, yeah I do, because displaying racism is not funny at all. It's disgusting and disturbing that no one does anything about it.

White people representing stereotypes of blacks, native american people, jews, mexicans etc. is not funny. It's an issue that's getting ignored. If I was black or native american, I'd rock a costume that makes whites feel uncomfortable, let's how that would go.

Racists use Carnival as an excuse to wear racist costumes and they should be called out.

This is not okay.

I am not against carnival, it can be fun, but I think some "costumes" should be banned, that's all.

I'm talking about what was posted in this thread subject. Sometimes people, and I'm not going after the op directly, but people try to find racism...

The thing is, that I didn't try to find racism in carnival, it is a fact that most native americans don't like it when none natives use their garb to have a fancy costume. People ignore it because they don't think it is an issue, they say we got bigger problems, wich might be true, and I also talk about that. But it's also important to talk about that issue. If the majority of a minority says STOP using our culture as a costume, we should listen. I even posted a link where a native american woman explained why it is NEVER allowed to wear their garb unless you are a native. If you have nothing to do with that culture, don't wear their garb. Find other costumes, but don't disrespect their culture. And even if some on this thread think it's not an issue, I think, everytime people disrespect a whole culture to have fun, it's a big issue.

It's just like if you wear a burka to carnival. It's not okay, because this is not a costume, it's a symbol. If you're a part of the religion you can wear it, but not to carnival.

Y'all might find some other things are bigger issues and you're right, but that doesn't mean we should look over that. Because I think it's a slap in the face of native americans.
