  • Halloween Indian Costumes.

    ____

    It's that time again. . .

    Next Friday, children of all ages will be wearing costumes of their favorite cartoon caracters, witches and American Indians etc. etc.

    Some say this is to honor us.

    Some just want to be Indian for an evening.

    Some say it is harmless.


    "I think it's an atrocity and mockery and sends a really negative message about Indian culture."

    What do you think??????????
    Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

        I am going dressed as an urban Indian

        if not then I will dress as a guy without socks.

        better, maybe I will cut up some sheets and dress up as a ghost with a pointy head.
        It is so sad that a family can torn apart by something as simple as a wild pack of dogs.

          Hmm... I was adopted by a white family...When I was younger and couldn't object to what I was made to wear...My parents would dress me up as an "indian". Now that I think of it....They were poopyheads!

            Well I definitly don't think it honors us. Halloween IS to dress as something you are not or someone you would like to be or admire for one night though and get candy and treats... at least that is the childrens' point of view. Granted the costumes suck and so do the warhoops and the stereotypes..but what did you dress up as when you were a kid?

            cowboys
            clowns
            monsters
            ghosts
            witches (think of how much this ticks off wiccans with that negative sterotype! LOL)
            superheros
            animals
            princesses
            monsters
            hobos (how do the homeless feel with this one?)
            cartoon characters

            I don't think there has'nt been a race, culture, social class not covered in the costume department. I don't know, I just don't think I will let a child having fun dressed in a "COSTUME" (key word here since they never really resemble anythign we'd wear anyhow) offend me.
            Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear... just sing, sing a song.sigpic

                      dangerous than a pointy-headed ghost. Know what the initials

                            HAHAHA... good one!

                            ahhh, who cares? i don't... i mean, it's a costume anyways and yes of course it sends out negative messages, but i agree w/blackbear... someone having fun in a costume will not offend me. it's all in good fun anyways.

                                It seems that all the 'what are you reading now' threads have died and I decided to make my own thread for books.

                                Post what you're currently reading, ask for recommendations or give recommendations, post what books you got most recently and anything else book related.
