Made this the other day. All the images are from a quick Etsy search. The improper appropriation of Native American cultural practices has interested me for a few years, particularly because it’s something that had to be pointed out to me, despite how widespread the practice is. (Not like I ever ran around in a headdress, it’s just not something I ever looked into.) We instinctively know that it’s wrong to mindlessly parrot other cultures’ beliefs, but somehow this one group is ok? That’s so weird and wrong.
