I did not wish to write about this problem with the White playing Indians, I was asked to.
Because, if you have been following my blog you will understand that my people, the Native Americans east of the Mississippi river, have no business wearing an Indian Headdress, in fact, my people consider it an insult to the Plains Indians or any other tribe that had ancestors with this culture, our brothers and sisters out west!

Never used a War Bonnet, not because there is anything wrong with wearing one, because it was, is and never should be part of our culture?
I would, if I must, guess that the confusion that this spoiled little white brat is having would be all of the wannabe and Indians east and west of that Indian culture are wearing them to look important?
A War Bonnet is Sacred, one must earn the right!
Another problem that wannabe’s and non natives have is seeing people like my cousin, my dear friend Chief Homer St. Francis of the St. Francis Sokoki Band of the Abenaki at Missisquoi, may they rest in peace wore one, plus a Narragansett is wearing one constantly?
We all know that my cousin was old, angry and a little senile and the only person man enough to face my friend Homer was his Shechaim, my grandfather, I have no idea why anyone along the east coast would believe it the right to wear one?
OKLAHOMA CITY — The daughter of Oklahoma’s governor, who is part of a punk band and has posed for revealing photos at the state mansion, defended herself Friday after posting a photo of herself in a Native American headdress that critics called insensitive.
Christina Fallin, who is not Native American, wears a red-and-white feathered headdress in the post, which includes the phrase
The post says the photo was taken at Remington Park, a racetrack and casino owned by the Chickasaw Nation, one of the state’s most powerful tribes.
