There is always an uproar when a scantily clad model, celebrity, or even our own women wear war bonnets. There is always an outcry and I have even stood my ground against this: You can not do this. It is wrong. Women do not traditionally wear headdresses like men, etc.
There have been attacks on fashion shows, Gwen Stefani, Victoria’s Secret, Halloween costumes, and these social media attacks have been successful. There re always strong women behind them, giving the reasons why our women don’t wear warbonnets. Most of the time, because they are nearly naked, the main reason is stereotyping Native women that way. As if all native women hyper sexual vamps when the rate of sexual violence against native women is higher than the national rate. The number of missing and murdered Native women is off the charts and rarely does each case see justice.
