Please do NOT wear Native-American headdresses to this event, or any costume that is meant to mimic Native American culture. Native headdresses are intended for religious-spiritual uses only, and the Native American community has been extremely vocal about the harm we cause when we wear their culture as a costume. Don’t do it.


Where can I get a costume?

In the spirit of radical self expression, we encourage you to create rather than purchase your costumes. If you are purchasing, be mindful of the source and make every attempt to support local costume designers and ethically sourced fashions.
