Okay, Avatar coming from an Orientalist perspective I get. Non-Asians imposing viewpoint is inherently wonky. Thank you.

But given the creator intent, I still think the characters are supposed to be Asian and Inuit, Americanized and fetishized as they may be, and the casting of all-white actors is completely undermining the original concept, misguided though it may be.
