As a 1st Nations person, I see nothing wrong with this form of regalia in this competion, it is a fluff competion anyway…
It is not all that much different than 1st Nations regalia I viewed when I was at Turtle Island in Ottawa, Ontario with Canadian powwow tourism advertisements.
People should be more concerned in Canada that Steven Harper just threw their right to privacy out the window, bowing to US concerns over terrorism.
Terrorism is one thing, right to privacy is another…
This little outfit in the future maybe the least of everyones concern.
Mr Trimble, if you cant tell, best to say nothing….
Your comment is awaiting moderation….not here, this is my blog!
I think Turtle Talk is great, getting Aboriginal issues of importance out into the mainstream….its a great medium for all of us commenting on this competition issue to agree to disagree, that is what is so wonderful about Canada & the US, their diversity…and, for the time being, freedom of opinion, speech & ideas…negative or positive!
There were many other very negative & rude comments by people who would not & could not ever compete in a Ms Universe contest, (Ms Congeneality, NOT! LOL!) needless to say…their opinions are just that….opinions.
I, HakiktaWin, have very traditional 1st Nations regalia which is very authentic, but now days many Native people just cant afford real leather, beads & feathers for their regalia, though they do go to powwows & compete there for prizes for dancing, regalia, etc…participate in Sun Dance Ceremony, & other ceremonies, & no one says anything about that….
So when I see someones interpretation of Native dress, I have kindness & compassion for their attempt at making & wearing Native-1st Nations regalia…
For such a long, long time… even our own people would not recongize their own Native blood…back then it wasnt cool to be 1st Nations….if you could pass for White-Wasciu…you did it, because…. it was easier than being Native. (Something that has been suggested to me many times, but I have always been proud to be Lakota, & always will be!)
Immitation, they say….is the best form of flattery.
No one said much about the hippy era…of them wearing our 1st Nations style of clothing, yet I see here many negative comments about someone elses perspective, some…like Mr.Trimble, whom I previously admired for his verbal combat with Tim Giago…the two now appear to be cut from the same cloth.
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder….
Oh, & by the way, Mr B…bite me!
You sound like a bleeding heart liberal, just like the ones who thought AIM was COOL, & role Models & Heros for our 1st Nations children.
AIMsters are murderers, liars, thieves, rapists, pedofiles & drug runners…so this little dress here isnt any big thang…get your priorities straight & give YOUR head a shake, & stop bitching…… & do something positive…I have.
Pilamayaye yelo, Wakan Tanka!
