I have some pretty strong feelings about the commodification of Native American attire within the hipster scene. War paint, faux leather skirts and headdresses were plentiful at the Pitchfork and Capitol Hill Music Festivals this summer.

DUDE. i am soooo with you. if it's not ripping off Africa, its the Native Peoples. if its not them, its the Middle Easterners. i mean, i can understand where people are coming from, admiring other people's cultures, BUT to go on a flippin' ...runway with a turban on, or a headdress with feathers and war paint, is like the dumbest thing ever. totally aggravating. and those hipsters wearing headdresses??? i can't even start on them. they're the people that think Native Americans only exist in old western movies and movies with pierce brosnan acting Indian.
