Sasquatch: Last of the War Bonnets?

Posted by on Sun, May 25, 2014 at 7:11 PM


I almost thought that we'd make it through a Sasquatch Festival of Music without seeing even one mis-appropriated headdress. But alas, although they have been largely been displaced by floral crowns, face glitter, and all of the tank tops, a few remain. Per the Fashion Tunnel Promise, we'll continue documenting these festival fashion decisions as long as a few people keep making them.

They think you think they look cool instead of clueless.

There has been many discussions on these headdresses. How are they mis-appropriated? Especially if one is actually native. It's a festival . The point is to have fun, dress up, and rage.. Why judge how others enjoy themselves?

Also I might add mis-appropriately mean to dishonestly or unfairly take a possession for one's own use. So I would see that as fitting to the situation.

Too bad he's rolling around with a c.i.b. card in his pocket. Which half you ignorant judgmental people don't know what that is. So look it up.. You're too busy looking for something to be offended by rather than looking to have a good time.

wearing a headdress = bad

taking a 15 month old baby to a drunken pot-fest = good

Lets all hope none of the Stranger's crew ever humanity from your stupidity, please.

@2 - if you can't make the connection that the bad choice of this headdress is racist, you too are racist. And definitely not "lovely". Chalking it up to a "good time" also makes you clueless and doubly racist.
