Oh, Brendita you poor thing. I'm so sorry, I wish someone had been able to warn you of what would happen if you did this shoot and posted it online. The Native American clothing thing is a VERY, VERY hot button right now and it never ends well. Regardless of intentions or how an image is conceptually shot and shown to the world....nine out of ten people will flip out and become enraged on behalf of a heritage they don't even have.

Also. I'm not responding to any comment made at me about the above. So, yeah. Don't really expect an argument from me if you wanna come at me like several of the users have been doing to -everyone- who comments. I'm not humoring y'all.

maybe 9 out of 10 people who speak up about the oppression of native people aren't native because genocide made indigenous americans the smallest racial population on earth :| things to consider because you make it sound like a joke of an issue.

None of the genocide has anything to do with this person wearing the headdress. It's not like she made it from the scalps of the native people she mutilated.

And there is no proof that the indigenous people in the land we now call America are the smallest race per population on Earth. If you talk about individual cultural groups of Native Americans, then you might possibly have a case, but as a whole, the natives of the Americas outnumber many groups around the world, like the Enets, the Botlikhs, or the Brau.

Sure, people taking pictures like this might not realize the cultural implications of what they are doing, but to call it racist is pretty off the mark. I don't get a sense at all that this person sympathizes with the massacres of the past from this photo, or that they have some racial bias against natives. I don't think anyone could given the subject matter.

It is. At least no one is claiming heritage though (because they like to claim my tribe and it's a bit embarrassing for both of us when I have to explain we don't even use warbonnets).

It's not racist, the photographer and model didn't go 'fuck those stupid 'Injuns'!', they probably just didn't think about the implications, so it's just inconsiderate and inappropriate.

Thing is, pointing out that someone is doing something racist isn't essentially calling that person racist. It's generally understood by those who are fighting this battle for native culture that it's more an issue of non-awareness than outright racism. Where it becomes outright racism is when people are told that this sort of imagery (for the sake of objectifying native women as beautiful mystical animals) is harmful.. and then they continue to unapologetically do it and defend it.

The solution would be to stop calling this "native". This is fantasy, pure fantasy, and not identifying this as such is spreading misinformation and perpetuating a harmful stereotype. It's uncreative; beautiful hipsters playing dress-up in sacred ceremonial wear (irregardless of the authenticity of their garb) is flooding the internet and if the artist wants to extinguish the flames on their gallery they need to remove the image.

Yes, she is gorgeous. Yes headdresses are beautiful. Yes this is a beautiful, well-executed photograph. The concept itself, however, is reprehensible as a drop of piss in an ocean of cultural scavenging that needs to get over itself and try a little bit harder to put feathers into hair without mimicking war bonnets and tagging it as #native.

I'm native and I'd just like to tell all you trolls to quit harrasing people like this, I think this is beautiful and there is nothing wrong with it. Native Americans were not the only ones to wear feathered head dresses such as this and being offended by the use of one is the equivalent of an irish person being offended by non-irish people wearing green on St. Patrick's day and I am also Irish. I come from a very important Blackfoot chieftan who's daughter marriaed an irishman... the genes of Europeans such as light skin, hair and eyes are more dominant than those of natives, not one of my great-grandmother's children resembled her. On top of all of that this is a COMMERCIAL peice... in no way shape of form does it claim that the model is native or that she is portraying a native.

Now, to the artist, I think that this is a beautiful picture. My only critique is that the blur on the tree(or what I'm assuming is a tree) takes away from the picture. I would have at least cropped the pic a bit so that it takes up less of the picture.

I'm glad that you decided to share your view, but I love the way that the moment an actual Native American makes a comment like "This doesn't offend me", everyone suddenly goes "Well you can't speak for ALL Native Americans!"
...so if a Native American isn't offended, that doesn't count for anything because all the Native Americans who can't give us their opinion must be offended by default. v.v;

Having native american blood doesn't mean that you can speak for them about pieces like this, nor does it undue the harm caused by the sterotype of native american women as inherently sexual. For example, I'm sure you know that more native american women experience sexual violence than any other minority, and that the majority of that violence is perpetrated by whites...so why would you defend even "innocent" portrayals...
That and:

Well, this peice isn't 'inherintly sexual' and I see no harm in it. I never said I spoke for the entirety of the native community. I know that native women face a lot of sexual violence but truthfully I don't think the issue is racism, I think the issue is people thinking it's okay to rape period. I should know, I was mollested for 3 years. So don't talk to me about the issue of sexual violence. The majority of rapes are by white men because white men still think they own the world and I AM a white man by deffinition. And if you don't like the wearing of head dresses as a fasion statement then go check out Gangaros from Japan who bleacj their hair and paint their faces to emulate California girls. Either way I'm done with this conversation as you have no respect for me or my beliefs so good day to you sir.
