Explaining to non-natives why war bonnets are NOT a fashion accessory??

I saw this shirt the other day at a store, and shared on my instagram account why it was not cool. A friend genuinely did not understand how it was disrespectful. I explained that it was essentially dishonoring our elders who have done great deeds and made sacrifices to earn each eagle feather in their war bonnets. I also explained that it was comparable to seeing a person wear a Marine Corps Dress blue jacket, with regular slacks, just for the fashion of it. It is wearing an item of clothing or earned item that was NOT rightfully earned and it disrespects those that have put the proper effort forth and earned it.


He thought I was posting it because I was honored to see a shirt with Native culture on it.... I had to stop the conversation because he literally did not understand how it was offensive. I explained in so many ways but...you can't educate some I guess.

As long as there are so called "celebs" like the Kardashians, and so forth, who think it's just fine and dandy to wear something simply because it's cool, people won't get it. It's kind of like a salmon trying to swim upstream-some will get it, a lot won't.

@Misscorinne86, you know, if you were to put a pair of glasses on you along with a similar bonnet, that image on the shirt could be you!

I don't know if Cher was respecting Native Americans or just don't seem to care.

Cher claims to have Cherokee ancestry from her mother's side. Her father was Armenian. Cher was born in a tiny rural hospital in El Centro, CA.

The Tchopatoulas "Afro-Indians" of Louisiana dress up in Mardi Gras outfits, by the way.

I've been on the front lines of educating the public on this issue through the various media including Here's Why You Shouldn't Wear A Native American Headdress - MTV.

At first celebrities wore warbonnets because they were uneducated about its meaning to Indian people. But now most ARE educated and choose to wear warbonnets and other Native regalia to gain publicity. SMH!
