    Nothing should be a Halloween costume. If your not a cop don't dress as one. Not a nurse or doctor don't dress as one. Not a witch don't dress as one. See the point

    I mean... ya, I get the sensitivity, these "rules" about society are getting a bit much though... you can dress like a hero from any nationality, who would not want their culture to be represented? If you are going to say this, better start eliminating everything remotely historical, anything connected with religion or any other culture... in fact, why not just make laws against wearing costumes in public? Isn't that right? I mean, really, historically, it was the modernization of certain religious values that undermined the indigenous people's beliefs, Halloween is the least damaging of the holidays to Native American or any other indigenous people's cultural values. When America was colonized, they brought all the other holidays, which destroyed traditional tribal ceremonies. If we are to ever honor Native American people, we need to recognize their beliefs, which are not rooted in christianity.

    So I've heard from both sides of the issue surrounding this. I am a Wapanoag Blackfoot. To prove our ancestry we have to take a blood quantum test. Horses dogs and natives are the only ones that must prove their lineage. If you are black hispanic asain white no test. Since our ability to vote we have always voted blue, yet the poverty among my people is astounding. Everyone thinks Detroit is bad? Go to a reservation youll be horrified. Yet we choose to be offended not by our social status, our drug epidemic, acholisim, drop out rates of schools because quite frankly those are in shambles, but by a costume? Thats what offends us most? Once again if you want to be respected want to have a voice want change, then change the one you can- YOU. Start right here and right now to make Native Americans the most loved and respected people the world has ever known. That when they say our names they rival the names of Spartans.

    So you say don't I wear the clothes of other people because it offends them? Im a weeb. I so love Japan, and the Japanese peoples, and the Japanese cultures. But i can't wear yukata, or any other traditional Japanese clothes, because you, and the snowflakes peoples think i make fun of their culture? It’s funny that no one cares that Borat, on the other hand, is making fun of the people of Kazakhstan. And Sacha Baron Cohen is not Kazakh.

    Why do you feel pain? 🤦🏻‍♀️🙄 Cholas and cholos don’t get upset when they dress up as them for Halloween? Lol not tryna be funny but seriously, I don’t feel anybody is making fun of Native Americans when dressing up as one for Halloween. What about if we wanted to dress up as Pochahontas?! It’s a costume and a lot of people dress up as her, kids and adults! There is nothing wrong with it!

    I'm Asian and I don't feel offended when someone wears our national dress. It makes me feel proud.

    Truth and facts. Racist costumes meant to degrade natives.

    So would it also be cultural appropriation if I make and use dream catches, use chopsticks, wear dreadlocks, plait my hair, wear henna, wear wigs...and *inserts just about everything else*. I gst it if people are making a mockery, but this is so ridiculous to do many people. The same concept can be said for those who dress up as witches, which should then be seen as a negative to those practicing witchcraft or who are Wiccan and have had ancestors tortured or out to death. Ffs. Why not focus this energy and power on seriously matters like rape and murder and abduction. 💀😭

    An indigenous lady wearing western-style dresses for her modeling job demands non-indigenous people not to wear indigenous costume for Halloween. How dear she wears white people's clothes? She behaves as if only her culture is sacred. Every culture is fair game under freedom of expression.

    You are stupid to not think that they are kinda promoting your culture. Be positive in outlook...

    Change the verbiage. If you're not Tribal American, Indiginous(sp) American, but the standard definition of native means I am a native American. Born here, raised here. I am of European descent which means I have no part of that culture, so yes, shouldn't wear those costumes EVER, but I am native to this country and continent.
