Speidi to Native Americans: It's Peace Pipe Time

4/2/2010 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Running Bear and White Wolf are now attempting to dislodge their moccasins from their mouths ... after their off-the-wall name changes pissed off multiple Native American groups.


Spencer "Running Bear" Pratt just told us: "Changing our names to Running Bear and White Wolf isn't meant to be disrespectful ... we respect [Native American] heritage and have a sincere acknowledgment of their beautiful culture."

Bear says he and Wolf "would like to invite any Native American tribal leaders to meet with us to help us further understand their culture" ... but we're guessing they'll only do it if cameras are rolling.

Gawd, how disrespectful. They have a sincere knowledge of Native American culture?! ????? THE N.A. culture?!

Which one of them?
There are 562 different nations last time I counted.

So typical non-Native "know it all!" people.

Natives don't need these fools genes to be good looking, we have our good looks intact and Heidi needed plenty of surgery to still look like hell. We will deal with these two on or off camera.

Ok I'm not Native American and will admit to not knowing as much as I should but that said I wish one of the Native American nations that send their boys out to the wilds to become men would do that to Spencer. Maybe he'd learn something.

Both Spencer and Heidi are IDIOTS and don't deserve ANY attention btw.

I think its great that they have embraced Native culture and seek more knowledge about it. They have every right to be named and every right to announce it to the world. They certainly dont need permission from a soux indian and I wouldnt give a rats ass for the opinion of one of those snakes in the grass. They're lucky to have even made it to the bad lands where we chased them.

These two just keep getting nuttier and nuttier. Why they would think that any Native American leaders would have time for them, is a mystery. If they had approached this in a different more low-key way, and actually realized that you can't just pick a name from a hat, things might be different. Maybe working with the people on a long-term basis, doing some charity work, raising awareness to Native American causes, maybe then they would have earned the right to take on these names that have been around for thousands of years. The thing is, this wannabe king and queen actually seem to mean well, but their over-inflated sense of importance is careering out of control.
