Where's the uproar?

Does this First Nations doll look a bit like Mr. T?  I'm pretty sure it doesn't look like any First Nations person that I saw in Canada.  Instead, this seems like the sort of souvenir one might have found in the Jim Crow south.   Canadian border inspectors must not be doing their job.

No photos or spelling PLEASE

Canadians mostly lived up to their stereotype of polite and law abiding, so perhaps it's the American tourists who are causing a spelling uproar.
