the cartoonista

Lalo Alcaraz is the alter ego of Eduardo Lopez. Lalo's comic strips mostly center on Chicano characters or issues, but he also includes Ndn issues in his strips, as well. Here are a few of them.

Most Indians are familiar with this kind of exchange. Another version of this is the "cocktail Cherokee." This person is a middle to upper class, white conservative who can be spotted at cocktail parties saying "You know, my great, great grandmother was Cherokee, and Indian mascots don't bother me one bit."

This one is a reference to an incident in 2002 when the cast of "the Sopranos" was barred from marching in the columbus day parade in New York City. Portraying a crime family on television was viewed by the parade sponsors as being worse than honoring an actual murderer.

This one shows that there are other views about who the terrorist are.
