Re: “Playing Indian

Haha. How is it possibly not reductionist or stereotypical? If not either of those, is it satirical? Way to derail someones argument by suggesting they are "overtly sensitive", not only is that comment informed by patriarchy but your expectations for ones reaction is a denial of the ongoing project of colonialism. A project that includes consuming the "others" culture.

On a side note, I really think the comment above and Krashiewicz characterization of halloween are ignorant on the days true history. Its true origins are as a celtic holiday celebrating harvest and the beginning of November. If you want more information look up the Celtic festival of Samhain. Yes there may have been dressing up involved by it is dressing up as a means to protect yourself from spirits etc, not dressing as one another. Just another example of cultural appropriation and how it results in a diluting of culture.
