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.

Actually my tribe would be more than happy to help anyone understand our culture and what its all about so if theyre serious they should contact the tribal leaders and ask them instead of the media, and reggie salami or whatever ur name is, get over it, learn ur history, the sioux were never chased anywere, we are the only nation to lose a war to neone, in the end we settled on out own terms which is y our land was originally 5 states, and whatever half ass tribe ur from is prolly still mad we kicked ur ass back in the day, its hard to believe people can still hold grudges after a century,

Shocking that they are not being slpated with a lawsuit or something...the two of them seem to be doing this with out any care for anyone else but themselves and I hope a tribe makes them listen without cameras rolling to see if the message gets through!!

Boy do they not stop... that's another slap in the face of the American Indians... correct me if I'm wrong but you just can't walk into a reservation and ask someone to give you an indian name because you want one.... these two just make my skin crawl.

What they don't realize is when you mock Native Americans...bad things happen..just like building on a burial ground.When you forgive your tresspassers..things happen to them and it's payback. That's the formula for a successful revenge. If Mr. Goldman had forgiven oj sooner..he would have been in prison already. Get it? It's hard to do...but try it just once..and you'll see.

This is really sad to see that the some of the comments made about the two fools who use another culture to raise publicity twoards their own usage. If it were any culture, others would use the words like racism and all that it entials. As a canadian native, this is how I see it. This statement,"They're lucky to have even made it to the bad lands where we chased them." is a prime example of what people think of native people. Thanks to speidi and heidi's bright idea. I hope that the native organziation steps up the plate. Because we are human beings and do not deserve this treatment from anyone. SAD, SAD, racsim still still alive and well in the USA.
