Native Humor: 10 More Funny #NativesBeLike Observations

What do American Indians say?

How do Native Americans act? What, as they say on Twitter, do Natives be like?

No, it’s not good grammar, but it makes for some funny sight gags. Some brilliant, some (possibly) insulting, but all containing at least a kernel of truth that justifies the humor. Don’t be embarrassed to laugh! Maybe not all Natives be like these, maybe you yourself don’t be like these… but odds are you have a second cousin twice removed who very much does be like these.

“Very much does be like these.” That is a heck of a phrase right there. We apologize to any English teachers in the crowd. Let’s move on to the pictures, shall we?
