Needless to say, many Natives are not fans of the trend. But that hasn’t stopped the festival from capitalizing on the “white kids playing Indian” motif and offering tipi rentals for the low weekend price of … $2,200? Paying rent in a New York City rat hole never sounded so good.
It’s not just white people, any non-Indigenous person engaging in this behavior is just as guilty.
This should extend to every person.. This is a blatant misrepresentation of a culture, and even if natives did this kind of crap it would be insulting to themselves.
