So I’m going to rant here a bit. The time of year has arrived where empathy and consideration go out the window. The image on the left is an ignorant portrayal of what is supposed to be a native woman. The image on the right is in fact, a native woman. There is no excuse for any race or culture to be compacted into a costume for one night of “fun”. Portrayals like these strip us of our humanity. I do not support any person who decides to make the conscious effort to perpetuate a vile act such as dressing up as something you’re not. You are not honoring me. You do not care about me. You are not going to use my culture to spice up your dull life for a night. I’m human. I’m native. I’m sick and tired.
