These are some of my awesome friends and classmates from the Stanford Native community, protesting the use of “Native” themes at campus frat parties back in 2009. I thought it was fitting to bring it back today, given our recent discussions of frat parties and halloween costumes.
Also, awesomely (and the reason I re-found it), the picture made it all the way to a blog I am a huge fan of, a allure garconniere, for her halloween post–and she’s in Quebec! The words under the picture actually came from this tumblr, and I’m amazed at how many people re-posted it. So cool.
Here’s another shot of Kanani, Edie, and Rachel, some of the beautiful Stanford Native Hawaiians:
You guys continue to inspire me from afar. So proud of y’all. Even in the face of injustice and racism, there are always people fighting the good fight.
