This morning, two examples of appropriation and misrepresentation of Native American cultures entered on my radar. The first is this t-shirt being sold at Forever-21: http://www.polyvore.com/headdress_graphic_high-low_top/thing?id=59911964. I don’t know what’s worse: the fact that it’s being sold or the fact that it is sold out.
The second is from Jimmy Kimmel live. It is on of his Liewitness News segments about Coachella, which incidentally takes place fairly close to the Cahuilla Nation. Most of the video is just making fun of hipsters, but pay attention at 2:23 into the video. I’m glad they chose to single that guy out. He deserves it.
