LAKE BUENA VIST, FL (AP) – On Friday, Walt Disney World officials said a performance by a visiting Texas team at a high school that used American Indian stereotypes, including singing “scalp them”, did not reflect the values of the Florida resort. .
This week’s performance in the Magic Kingdom of Indianettes training group from Port Neches Grove High School did not reflect our core values and we regret it happened, ”Disney spokeswoman Jacques Waller said in an email.
The audition record provided by the school for selection for the amusement park performance did not match the actual performance, the statement said.
Valery said that new measures have been taken to prevent this from happening again. She did not specify.
У video A speech posted on Twitter showed members of the training group tapping their hands on their mouths and shouting when a drum was knocking in the background, which is stereotypically called a “military cry.”
Courtney Sheksneider, director of the study group, did not respond to an email asking for comment. The Port of Neches is located off the Persian Gulf coast approximately 13 miles (20 kilometers) southeast of Beaumont, Texas.
