Khloe Kardashian just posted this picture to her twitter, with the caption “I love playing dress up!”
If you can stomach it, read the comments. They’re already playing the “omg get over it stop being so sensitive it’s just a hat!” game.
This makes me sad. I like Khloe.
So if you still need to know why it’s wrong to dress up in a warbonnet:
I think this also drives home the point I’ve mentioned before of how Natives are often viewed as “fantasy characters”–something that you can dress up as, play pretend. Wizard, Princess, Indian. The problem is Natives exist, we are real, and putting Native people in the fantasy character category erases our current presence as actual human beings.
