“Wild One” native American Party Details:This is what Jaclyn said about planning/styling the party-

“The theme came naturally to our little birthday boy named Archer! Mommy and Daddy both love the outdoors and loved the idea of having something fun and kid friendly. The party was at the Chumash Indian Museum and had a fire pit, huts and original Chumash items. We made the fabric teepees for the kids to play inside. The kid’s table feature painted cactus, small tepees and bags of painted rocks with a tag that read, “tell me a story.” The guests snacked on a a build your own trail mix bar while waiting for the little Indians to make their transformation. The kids were taken on a scavenger hunt to gather all the things they needed to become a little “Wild One.” They received feather headbands, dream catcher necklaces, custom made temporary tattoos, face paint, hand made bows made from sticks and twine, arrows, animals and a necklace where they were given their Native American name. The party was a big hit and everyone le ft with smiles and worn out kiddos”!

    This is insane? In what world is this seen as cute and adorable and OK. Do you realize how racist and offensive this is?

    This has to be considered the worst, most horrendous culturally mis-appropriated party of all time

    – Yes, lets play on the Wild Indian sterotype that should have died 30 years ago….nope – let’s let our kids have the same stereotype
    – The program of events with face painting, creeping, arrows…..
    – Kids with “Little Brave” tatoos.
    – The birthday boy dressed up as something some white lady on LSD could only imagine as an “Indian Chief”
    – Stick a feather on something and it instantly becomes “Indian motif”
    – Then to top it off lets take the sacred idea of what a dreamkeeper is (you know, protect children while they dream at night) and have the kid just smash it.

    Now what kind of Indian are you being at this party? Plains tribes (tipis), Northwest tribes (totem poles), Southwest tribes (dessert plants, designs on cake)

    What’s in the gift bag? A bottle of alcohol and a note telling them their bedroom is being taken over by their sister but they get a new bedroom/reservation down in the basement.

    Who are you people? Do you know any actual American Indians that you ran this by or did you just watch a bunch of old Hollywood movies and tv shows and decide this is so cool?

    I doubt I can change your mind but please before you just think “I need to lighten up and have some fun” please take a second and really think about this. Think about how this might offend a Native American kid. I’m Native and my son is part-Native (of course). Could you imagine him as he is just starting to learn about his Native culture and then he comes to this party and sees (war paint, bow and arrows, feathers in everything…I imagine whooping with hand over mouth happens)…

    Just please think about this from a different perspective not you’re white heritage, party planning expertise angle lens.
