Chipewyan, a name given to us by the Cree which means ‘pointed skin’, (in reference to the clothes the Chipewyan wore) is an Aboriginal group that spans across the northern parts of Canada. However, most Chipewyan prefer to be called Dene (‘the people’) in place of Chipewyan.
I am not Indian. I have no ancestors from India.
I am a mixed race First Nations person whose history is rooted in the Dene people from Canada and the Aztec people in El Salvador.
Indigenous people are not a costume. Indigenous people are not a trend. Indigenous people are important and need to start getting the respect they deserve. - Mod M
While you’re at it don’t dress up as pirates either because pirates are not a costume. Pirates are not a trend. Pirates are important and need to start getting the respect they deserve.
I say we just ban costumes over all so we don’t offend any group of people, because we all know; If you are offended, you’re always in the right.
Is anybody really surprised? White people honestly never cease to NOT surprise me. Doesn’t matter where they come from, they honestly refuse to believe that people of color do not have the right to be angered about the rape of their cultures. It must be nice to be white and privileged knowing that your “culture” is not in threat of being appropriated. Or possibly you honestly do not care, because you view people of color as subhuman.
