Wow I m American Indian and the feather head bands racism in it full glory. Just because some thing is a trend doesn't make it right! So people think before you would buy some thing that is racist! There are great American Indian artist out look them up! Support a Native not just a company making money off a person race!

the question is... as fashionable this is.. would you be sensible enough to wear something like this in the real world? anyway, i still admire gals who wear something brave like this and still walk the streets with their chin up high... kudos to you!you're brave!

contd..As fashion lovers,let’s engage in critical, informed decisions & discussions about the things we choose to wear instead of simply going along with what’s trendy or thinking “so what, people copy other cultures all the time/ it looks cute!” (I tried to add some links to blog articles which are really insightful but you're not allowed to, so if anyone is interested in them please ask me!)

Hmm, I agree with some of the other commenters, I wouldn't wear something like this as I see it as cultural misappropriation. Tumblrs like mycultureisnotatrend and hispterappropriations discuss these issues of why it's wrong, simply thinking of it as a fashion trend doesn't acknowledge the issues of stereotyping, colonialisation, spiritual significance etc when someone dons a feather headdress.

We definitely understand the cultural significance of the feather headdress, and in no way mean to seem as if we are dismissing it as simply a trend. We apologize if we have offended you or others.

cultures actually influence fashion all the time, not just native american. they aren't trying to insult anything, they just take inspiration from the richness of other cultures. I like these headbands!

Thank you, the feather inspiration is drawn from many cultures. We are definitely not trying to offend anyone!

This is actually really not okay. It's racist, it's wrong, it's cultural misappropriation. A culture is not a "trend", chictopia. Shame on you for promoting this.

To bring this to the table, and I know that this might be somewhat controversial but some food for thought about why this Trend is NOT trendy, its appropriating a culture (and some thoughts on this would be lovely):
