In his column about the Ward Churchill controversy, David Kopel drops this little nugget:

In February 1994, Westword detailed the bitter political divisions in the radical Indian community, noting that the national American Indian Movement accused Churchill of falsely claiming to be part Indian. The article observed that Churchill is "A part-time painter who lost the ability to sell his work as 'Indian art' after a 1990 federal law required Indian artists to prove their ethnic authenticity . . ."

Gives new meaning to the phrase "artistic license."
