In 2017, assistant professor of American Studies at Brown University called Adrienne Keene two Coachella festivalgoers for wearing Indian headdresses
Assistant Professor of American Studies at Brown University Adrienne Keene wrote about the problem for the first time in 2010 and said that wearing it helps to promote & # 39; stereotypes of indigenous cultures & # 39 ;.
Keene said the items & # 39; have a deep spiritual meaning & # 39; and it's & # 39; just like wearing a black face & # 39 ;.
She tweeted following the news: & # 39; Almost a decade since my first message about & # 39; hipster headdresses & # 39; at music festivals, @sfoutsidelands has banned headdresses! I'll take it. & # 39;
Keene added: & # 39; Although, your statement has @sfoutsidelands one of my biggest pet lovers: & # 39; Out of respect for Native American descent and culture, we don't allow headdresses at Outside Lands & … 39 can anyone see it?
& # 39; Heritage. Cultures. Plural. Multiple. There is no such thing as & # 39; Native American Culture & # 39 ;. There are 570+ countries with their own cultures and traditions. Also only a few tribes wear warbonnets, so you can even call them.
& # 39; but still happy. Had liked it in 2010 when it was still trendy, but thankfully they took a position. @coachella with their next tipi village please. & # 39;
They have become such controversial cultural and religious symbols that musicians Pharrell Williams and the Flaming Lips & Wayne Coyne apologized for wearing them as costume items.
And in 2015, traders were banned from selling them at the British music festival Glastonbury after a petition was presented to organizer Emily Eavis.
Big Gigantic performs on the Sutro stage during the 2018 Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival at Golden Gate Park in 2018. Organizers said in a statement that they forbid the headdresses out of respect for the Indians and culture & # 39;
It is clear that Outside Lands Music festival, which will be held in Golden Gate Park from 9 to 11 August, last year banned the item.
The music event will be led by Childish Gambino, Counting Crows and Paul Simon.
In 2017, Keene called on two Coachella festival visitors for wearing Indian headdresses.
One of the people pictured wrote on Instagram: & # 39; I sincerely want to apologize to anyone who is upset about my headdress at Coachella. I am a person and I admit that there are still many things that I am not yet aware of. Although the headdress I wore was beautiful and I wanted to emphasize its beauty, I regret that I wore it. & # 39;
And in 2104, the Bass Coast Festival in Canada prohibited & # 39; all feathered war caps & # 39; out of respect for & # 39; the dignity of the indigenous population & # 39 ;.
They then said: & We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets.
& # 39; They have a beautiful aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated. Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of the indigenous people. & # 39;
